Water Watchers

Sno-King Water Watchers Program

Sno-King Watershed Council operates a community-based water monitoring (CBWM) program in the north King /south Snohomish county area. We are looking for people interested in monitoring local creeks or streams.

Our goal is to foster watershed stewardship through the development of volunteer water monitors. Citizens will monitor physical, chemical and biological indicators of watershed fitness. Monitors can use their data for protection and restoration of watersheds, streams and lakes, advocacy for the improvement of water quality and public health, and to implement environmental education programs.

Once again in 2018, we will be conducting water monitoring workshops in conjunction with Global Water Watch. Workshops included Introduction to Water Monitoring, Bacteriological Monitoring, Water Chemistry Monitoring, and Biomonitoring. Click the link below for the current workshop announcement.
