As school lets out for the summer, many of the BWTF water testing programs that are based in high schools also take a break. Both the West LA/Malibu and the South Bay Chapters recently held year-end events to celebrate another successful year of beach water testing. These events serve as a means to reward the students' participation, raise awareness in the community of their program and local water quality issues, and provide a venue for the students to present their water quality data. The West LA/Malibu BWTF program includes students at Santa Monica High School. The South Bay Chapter reaches students at El Segundo, Mira Costa, Redondo Union, South and Westchester High Schools through the SEA Lab at Redondo Beach. Congratulations to all the students!
