Streamflow Monitoring Technician – Clark Fork Coalition
The Clark Fork Coalition (CFC) seeks a Streamflow Monitoring Technician to complete streamflow monitoring and data entry/analysis for CFC’s instream flow restoration projects this summer. One of the ways that CFC works to restore the watershed is by purchasing and leasing water rights from landowners to ensure that tributary streams stay cold and connected to mainstem rivers during the driest times of the summer. This position will complete the monitoring required for these projects, primarily on private land. The Streamflow Monitoring Technician will assist with all stages of monitoring including setup of monitoring sites, data collection, equipment maintenance, and data entry and analysis. CFC monitors approximately 30 sites within 2 hours of Missoula, and this position involves extensive travel within the watershed. A personal vehicle will be required.
All training for this position will be provided, after which the Streamflow Monitoring Technician will be expected to work solo in the field. This position will report to the Project and Monitoring Coordinator.
