Did you know that ALL waterways are connected to the ocean?
Understanding the connection between waterways and the ocean is crucial because any pollutants or contaminants introduced into inland water bodies can eventually reach and affect the marine environment.
This is why it’s also important to test all waterways leading to the ocean! Without regularly testing our local waterways, we have no idea how healthy (or unhealthy) they are. Understanding water health is the first step in making good decisions for it!
Join Water Rangers on the last weekend of every month in testing your local waterways. Don’t have any water testing equipment? No worries! Even qualitative observations are needed and can be recorded on Water Rangers’ app and open data platform.
“Official” testing days are the last Sunday of every month, but testing on Friday, Saturday, or Monday of the same weekend is also encouraged if Sunday doesn’t work for you.
