Description of project:
The Aquatic Invasive Species Program is in need of 8 artificial substrate samplers to help detect possible adult quagga and zebra mussels. These samplers will be used throughout the Southeastern region waters. The artificial substrate should be a series of four square plates that are 6, 8, 10, and 12 inches in size, arranged as a pyramid with the smallest plate at the top. The plates should be made of 1/8 inch grey plastic PVC stock with ¾ inch CPVC grey pipe for spacers in 1 inch sections between the plates. The sampler is held together with an 8 inch long 3/8 inch diameter stainless steel eyebolt, plus washers and a wing nut. Please refer to the picture below
No special requirements are needed, although it would be beneficial for the volunteer to have some construction/mechanical experience.
Number of volunteers needed: 1
Number of available hours per person: TBD
