WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) -- The Wabash River Enhancement Corporation had its Spring Wabash Sampling Blitz this afternoon, gathering data about the cleanliness of the Wabash River.

Volunteers were given the chance to take samples of various parts of the Wabash measuring things such as clarity and water temperature.

Shannon Stanis, watershed coordinator with the Wabash River Enhancement Corporation, said the water quality has been improving through the years, and the sampling gives people an opportunity to become involved in the local science community.

“We all live in a watershed,” Stanis said. “What we do on our land impacts our water, and impacts that water quality and ultimately it all drains to the Wabash. So this experience is a really great one to actually see that in action.”

The results of samples from today and all the way back to 2009 can be found here.
