Water Warriors

Interested in the health of your local watershed?  Want to find a great outdoor family activity?  Join our growing group of citizen scientists, the Water Warriors, to perform critical water tests.  We will provide you with the equipment and training to test the water, document the results and track the health of the water body over time.  Once you are trained, you can Sign Up to test at whichever location works for you and whenever you like during the first week of any month.

We hold in person training sessions twice a year. If you can’t make a training session or if you don’t want to wait to get started, please contact the MRWC Water Warriors at waterwarriors@mrwc-fairfield.org and we can get you testing. You can also view a training slideshow or a video of the slideshow from one of our Water Warriors (and a former Earth Echo Ambassador) who will explain how to test water using the EarthEcho kits in this training presentation

Monthly Testing

Once you have trained, use our Sign Up Genius Portal to choose a water body to monitor during the first week of any month you choose.

How's My Waterway?

Check out the EPA website that provides general reference about the health of our local waterways. Water quality is monitored for physical, chemical and biological factors as they relate to swimming, aquatic life, safety of eating the fish and drinking the water. The monitoring results are assessed against state water quality standards approved by EPA.
