Water Quality Initiatives

1/1

The Glynn Environmental Coalition works to monitor, improve, and protect the quality of our fresh, salt, and brackish waters of Glynn County. This includes our shallow and deep water aquifers that are a source of drinking water for our community, and surface waters of our estuaries that sustain wildlife, provide sustenance for many members of our community and support our local industrial, commercial, and recreational economies.

The Glynn Environmental Coalition hosts bi-annual workshops to certify volunteers to monitor chemical and bacterial water quality. Once a volunteer is certified, they can sign out a water quality monitoring kit, and set up their own monitoring schedule at the site of their choosing. 

 

Goal: Collect baseline water quality data for Glynn County, detect impairments to water quality, promote restoration or remediation of water quality where necessary. 

Join our community of citizen scientists working to monitor water quality throughout Glynn County and the Georgia Coast.

As Glynn County is a fishing community, guidelines for safe consumption of our oceans’ harvest are in the public health interest of everyone. Knowledge of safe harvestable species, as well as locations of safe harvesting areas, is essential to the health of our families as well as maintenance of a healthy commercial fishing industry.  For over 20 years, the Glynn Environmental Coalition has served as a resource for providing this vital information to our community.

Goal: Raise awareness for the seafood consumption advisories in Glynn County and mitigate health risks, especially for women and children, associated over-consumption of contaminated seafood.
