Fritzi Olson of Current Problems sent this message today–please volunteer to help if you can:


I still need to hear from people.  Help me out by forwarding the request for volunteers on to others you think might be interested.  I’ve copied the original message below for your use.  I need to finish up my well recruiting by Aug 20.  I’ve also attached the map so you can pass that on, too, if you choose

Thanks so much for your interest and for helping out.  I do appreciate it.


Friends of the Springs

I need your help.  I am assisting with a  project funded by a springs protection tag grant to test for synoptic nitrate levels in 100 wells and springs in the Santa Fe River Springshed. It is my job to recruit 50-60 wells within a 10 mile radius of Poe Springs.  The nitrate levels will be tested these wells and the springs within the study area.  If you are interested in sampling your well for nitrates, send me your name, e-mail, and phone #.  Someone from Aquifer Watch will then contact you to arrange for a site visit to tell you how the project will work and to see if your well is appropriate.  Then if you are still interested and your well fits their criteria, you will collect a sample from your well during the week of September 15-19 and again from May 18-22 the following spring.  When the project is completed, a presentation will be made to the Santa Fe River Springs Protection Forum in the fall of 2015.  The laboratory data will be provided to the homeowners along with a map summarizing all of the sample results.  If you have questions please feel free to contact me either via e-mail [email protected] or phone (352-215-7554).
