Sediment is the number one pollutant in most waterways around the country. It clogs fish gills, destroys habitat, increases the cost of water treatment and delivers harmful pollutants such as heavy metals, toxic chemicals and E. coli to our waterways.
The Muddy Water Watch program was created by Waterkeepers around the country as a way to monitor and protect their waterways from harmful pollution. This project will train volunteers on how to recognize best management practices to keep sediment out of our waterways, how to report and to follow up, so our waterways can finally meet the goals of the Clean Water Act to be fishable and swimmable.
