Covekeepers examine water quality at Sept. 8 meeting in Steele Creek

August 31, 2010 

— The location of the Lake Wylie Covekeepers meeting at 7 p.m. Sept. 8 will move this month to the Red Fez Club, 16600 Red Fez Club Road, Steele Creek, on Lake Wylie.

Riverkeeper David Merryman will lead an examination of leaf packs placed in area streams and creeks during the past month, identify species found in the packs and discuss how their presence acts as a gauge of water quality.

Also to be discussed are preparations for the upcoming Riversweep clean up event Oct. 2. Volunteers are needed for many of the tasks required to run the event. Interested members, as well as the public, are encouraged to attend to learn more.

For more information, e-mail Ellen Goff at and include “Covekeeper” in the subject line.
