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.

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.Visit Website

Water Cycle Glossary of Terms
“The water cycle is a continuous cycle that keeps water moving on and around Earth in different forms. The different stages of the water cycle include evaporation, condensation, precipitation, and collection. Each stage of the cycle leads to the next stage, and each stage is an important part of a process that helps to water plants, fill cisterns, dry up puddles, and remove floodwaters.” Monitoring water quality throughout this process, allows us to see the impact of pollution in far reaching ways.Link to O.Berk water cycle resource
