Volunteer Monitoring Success Stories

Volunteer monitoring plays many important roles in water quality protection and restoration, ranging from building awareness of a problem or even just a waterbody, to document improvements resulting from community action. We are typically so engrossed in the daily activities that keep Watershed Watch running, that we don't always celebrate the successes that our volunteers have in their communities or even those that our program has at the state or regional level.

This page will provide an opportunity for us to share your successes and to let you know how the dedication of our volunteers protects and improves our critical local water resources.

Please share your stories of how your local volunteers, lake association, conservation commission, or other organization uses URIWW data, resources or information to enact legislation, focus on a local problem, participate in a local events or some other success that you would like to celebrate!

These links will bring you to a few of the many stories that highlight just how important volunteer monitoring can be:
