Monitoring Kit Information

SC Adopt-a-Stream Monitoring Kit Information

  • Your monitoring group can choose to either buy a kit or assemble it yourself. Kits are available already assembled for you in partnership with USC-Upstate's Watershed Ecology Center in Spartanburg, SC. You can order a kit specific to the monitoring protocol(s) used, or a kit for all protocols.
  • Given the significant costs of a monitoring kit, there exist agencies, colleges and universities, cities and counties, and non-profit organizations that have kits available for loan to certified SC AAS Volunteers. Many thanks to those entities supporting the collection of more water quality data in South Carolina and our shared river basins. 

Now you can order individual reagent refills and replacement hardware supplies directly through LaMotte. Please visit their website at, and click the "Adopt a Stream" tab. To place your order, call the LaMotte Customer Service Department from 8:15AM to 5PM EST, Monday through Friday at 410-778-3100. Indicate the description, code, and quantity needed when ordering. When placing an order – ALWAYS stress that you are ordering items for the South Carolina Adopt-a-Stream program. LaMotte does not have an online purchasing option.
