Chesterfield WaterTrends is Chesterfield County’s official citizen water monitoring program. Volunteers perform a variety of water quality tests that gauge the overall health of the county’s waterways. 

Volunteer Training

Volunteers learn to monitor a basic suite of parameters that include:

  • Dissolved Oxygen
  • pH
  • Temperature
  • Turbidity

Volunteers may also conduct bacterial monitoring. Volunteers receive an Orientation and Training Manual and monitoring equipment at no charge. 


Email the environmental outreach coordinator for more information.
