Dedicated to Community-Based Watershed Stewardship through Citizen Volunteer Monitoring
Alabama Water Watch (AWW) is a citizen volunteer, water quality monitoring program covering all of the major river basins in Alabama. AWW is a part of the Global Water Watch network.
The AWW vision is to have a citizen monitor on every stream, river, lake and coast in Alabama. The goal of AWW is to foster the development of statewide water quality monitoring by:
- Educating citizens on water issues in Alabama and the world
- Training citizens to use standardized equipment and techniques to gather credible water information using quality assurance protocols.
- Empowering citizens to make a positive impact by using their water monitoring data for environmental education, waterbody restoration and protection, and involvement in watershed stewardship.
