|Monitor your local water body.|
World Water Monitoring Challenge is an international program that encourages citizen volunteers to monitor their local water bodies. An easy-to-use test kit enables everyone from children to adults to sample local water bodies for basic water quality parameters: temperature, acidity (pH), clarity (turbidity), and dissolved oxygen.
The results of current and past studies are shared with participating communities around the globe through the organization's online Data & Reports page.
