Riverwatcher

Report PollutionOur Riverwatcher Program enables volunteers, like you, to effectively monitor and report pollution on the Potomac River, the Shenandoah River and all the tributaries. We will show you what to look out for while you’re out on the river, which pollution issues are prevalent for our watershed and how you can report pollution. Being a Riverwatcher is an easy way to help us make our rivers and streams safer to swim, fish and drink. Click here to get more details from a Riverwatcher volunteer.

Our trainings include a demo of our new iPhone app -- The Water Reporter! Download it today!

You don't need a training to help us. If you see pollution while you're out on the river, just take a picture and send it to us -- either by email, webform or The Water Report app. If you couldn't take a photo, we still would like to hear from you immediately. The sooner the better.

Always remember -- No Trespassing on private property. Stay on public right of ways when observing and taking photos. Do not take photos of people or private homes.

You can also report pollution to local agenciesRead our blog on who to call for more information.
