Monitoring Your Water: A Simple Way To Care For Water


by Andrew Ciccone February 14, 2017

New water monitoring technologies such as pressure and acoustic wireless sensors with cloud-based computing track the integrity of water supply networks.

Our nation's waters are monitored by state, federal, and local agencies, universities and volunteers.  

Water quality data is used to characterize waters, identify trends over time, identify emerging problems, determine whether pollution control programs are working, help direct pollution control efforts to where they are most needed, and respond to emergencies such as floods and spills.

The world first celebrated World Water Monitoring Day in 2003, today, the program has become the World Water Monitoring Challenge (WWMC). The WWMC builds public awareness and involvement in protecting water resources around the world by engaging citizens to conduct basic monitoring of their local water bodies.

The Method - Test. Share. Protect.

First, TEST The Water Quality:

  • Water quality refers to the chemical, physical, biological, and radiological characteristics of water
  • You can test the quality of the water in your home by buying and utilizing a water testing kit
  • Obtain a Water Quality Report from your municipal water supplier in your region.
  • Test the water with you school or community group
  • Guaranteeing that your water does not contain destructive levels of microscopic organisms, lead, pesticides, nitrites/nitrates, chlorine, or hardness, and has a proper pH is vital for good health.

Next, SHARE The Water Quality

  • Enter your data online to the WWMC and share your stories and photos @MontiorWater.
  • Become part of the solution for clean water and healthy waterways worldwide.  

Finally, PROTECT The Water

  • Take action and protect vital water resources and the quality of water in your local watersheds to ensure the overall health of the environment and our communities.

Why Care About Water?

  • Unless water monitoring projects fit into a wider strategic framework, the outcomes will do little to help us all understand what must to done to protect our environment.
  • Take action today to support water quality monitoring in your community by contacting your local government officials and ask them to support water monitoring legislation in your community.
