The Great Lakes Institute for Environmental Research is calling for local citizens to assist with the testing of local waters as part of a large scale water quality project.  Researchers are hoping to obtain as many samples as possible over the coming weekend.  Citizens are asked to pick up sterilized bottles from select locations and then obtain a water sample from local beaches and other bodies of water.  Please click on the links provided to determine a pick up location close to you and to obtain further information on this worthwhile endeavor.
