Our water quality monitoring program in MD uses citizen scientist volunteers to collect water quality samples in the mainstem Anacostia as well as at-risk tributaries in the watershed from May to September each year. The program will start in 2020 with funding from the National Fish and Wildlife Foundation (NFWF) covering 7 sites across MD and DC. To help us in this project we work with Friends of Sligo Creek, Friends of Lower Beaverdam Creek, Corazón Latino, and Alliance for the Chesapeake Bay to help us train our volunteers, spread the word, and help our volunteers collect samples. We post water quality results for bacteria, dissolved oxygen (DO) turbidity, pH, water temperature, and air temperature weekly in order to provide up-to-date water quality information for residents and visitors to the Anacostia watershed during the recreational season (May to September). We aim to get water quality information into the hands of the people who need it most: YOU!
