Tools for community water monitoring

How's your water quality?

Did you know? According to WWF's Watersheds Report, over 60% of Canadian subwatersheds are so data poor, we don't even know if they're healthy or not. That's where you come in. We need your help to fill data gaps! We believe that crowdsourcing water quality data through community water monitoring is a great way to help scientists fill in gaps to achieve sustainable water monitoring.
