A group of local boaters aren't interested in waiting for officials and have prepared to collect data on the oil spill this weekend.
Saturday July 16th we will meet in billings and have a briefing as to how we will gather data regarding the possible/expected oil deposits in the river. We will be using our personal GPS units, cameras and oil collection spill kits to document our findings. We will coordinate shuttles and assign sections of the river to teams of boaters.
After this organizational meeting we will hit the River! At the end of the day we will regroup and have our data collected & compiled by our very own computer geeks.
