FreshWater Watch empowers communities to test and monitor local water sources, promoting awareness and addressing nutrient pollution from agriculture, industry and waste facilities. A growing number of community groups are joining us, gaining experience in citizen science while gathering valuable data. Use the map below to view water sample data from groups around the globe.

Through our projects, communities become more knowledgeable on local and global environmental challenges, and can change things for themselves and other communities in the area.
