WATSONVILLE — The Monterey Bay National Marine Sanctuary and the Coastal Watershed Council will host the 15th annual Snapshot Day, a water quality-monitoring event on the Central Coast on May 3. The event involves hundreds of volunteers who collect water quality samples from rivers and streams in California’s coastal watersheds, including the 10 major watersheds that drain into the Monterey Bay National Marine Sanctuary, said Lisa Emanuelson of MBNMS.

Snapshot Day is the oldest and largest single-day, water-quality-monitoring event in California. It is designed to increase public awareness of water quality issues by providing a “snapshot” of regional water quality conditions, Emanuelson said.
