Citizen Monitoring: Educating and Engaging Citizens through Monitoring Activities
Utah Water Watch (UWW) is a water quality education and data collection program that seeks to increase awareness about the importance of water quality and promote stewardship of Utah’s aquatic resources.
Utah Water Watch is in the process of converting their database. If you have any questions about data entry or accessing old data, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org or 435-797-2580. Legacy data is still available at https://uww.usu.edu. Volunteers are asked to create a login on http://citsci.org and request to join the Utah Water Watch project. While there may be some bumps during the process, we are excited about the additional features the new database provides for easy data entry, App capability and data and site visualization.
