We are currently working to build our Riverwatcher Program that will enable volunteers, like you, to effectively monitor and report pollution on the Potomac River and its tributaries. Potomac Riverkeeper will train you on what to look out for while you’re out on the river, which pollution issues are prevalent for our watershed and what you can do about. Being a Riverwatcher means improving our local water quality at the source, making it safer to swim, fish and drink. Click here to get more details from a Riverwatcher volunteer.
If you’re interested in attending a Riverwatcher training, please sign up here and indicate which date you are interested in!

Date to be determined at REI Rockville
The process is simple: point, click, and send. If you see pollution while you're out on the Potomac River or one of the smaller rivers and streams that feed the Potomac River, just take a picture and send it to us. If you couldn't take a photo, we still would like to hear from you immediately. The sooner the better.
- Send us an email keeper(at)potomacriverkeeper.org or give us a call 202-222-0707, telling us the location of where you were and a description of what you saw.
