World Water Monitoring Day

Postcard DE-1767000 from Germany can be a good reminder of the World Water Monitoring Day. Established in 2003 by America's Clean Water Foundation, the World Water Monitoring Day is a global educational outreach program that promotes public awareness and involvement in protecting water resources around the world. 

It empowers citizens to carry out basic monitoring of their local water bodies with a simple water test kit so that anyone can take a sample of local water bodies to test a set of water quality parameters including temperature, acidity (pH), clarity (turbidity) and dissolved oxygen (DO). Results are then shared with participating communities around the globe through the World Water Monitoring Day website.
