The EarthEcho Water Challenge builds public awareness and involvement in protecting water resources by engaging citizens to conduct basic monitoring of their local waterbodies.

Locally, students from middle and high schools collect and analyze samples from stream segments to observe the impacts of storm water runoff from their neighborhood. Results are shared with participating communities around the world. 

The City provides free kits to educator’s as well as assists in field experiences centered around water quality assessments that utilize the kits. Please email us at if interested.
