      Citizen Science: Volunteer Water Quality Monitor in DC

      Anacostia Riverkeeper, funded by DOEE and working with multiple partner organizations (Alliance for the Chesapeake Bay, Audobon Naturalist Society, Potomac Riverkeeper Network, Rock Creek Conservancy), will be conducting District-wide weekly water sampling to inform the public about up-to-date water quality health as well as help inform long-term policy decisions about DC waterways from May 1st to September 11st. We will be collecting water quality samples from 22 sites in D.C. on the Potomac and Anacostia Rivers, as well as Rock Creek. Each site will be sampled for bacteria, pH, and turbidity and then analyzed in the Anacostia Riverkeeper lab. Sampling is done Wednesday and/or Thursday mornings. All data goes online 24-hours later after the samples are analyzed (see our website for results!).  Sign up for a free ticket for updates on our results thoughtout the summer or to get updated about our future trainings!
