....Clarke County has been actively involved in water quality protection for the past 3 decades. ....the County has relied heavily on the Friends lab and volunteers as an active partner in this effort. ....the County was actively involved in several F ederally funded stream restoration projects.... W e utilized the FOSR lab for all sample analysis and found them to be professional, accurate, and expedient with both the analysis and reporting.
....the Friends of the Shenandoah is a strong grassroots organization that provides a valuable service as stewards and watch dogs of our water resources. We look forward to a long and continued working relationship with the Friends.
