Wherever you live in Alabama, you probably have a river or lake nearby. Our state is known for its beautiful waters. However, these waters could be at risk from E. coli and other bacterial and chemical pollution, and limited funding allows state agencies to monitor only a small fraction of our streams, rivers, lakes, bays and bayous. But you can help.
Tuesday, Feb. 21, is Auburn University’s Tiger Giving Day, and this year, we’re inviting you to help Alabama Water Watch expand its network of volunteers through training and water test kit supplies. Your support not only will ensure the protection of the waters we love, but it could save some of the world’s richest aquatic biodiversity.
The Alabama Water Watch program at Auburn recruits, trains and equips volunteer citizens to monitor and protect our waters. These volunteers have detected dozens of polluted rivers and streams to be cleaned up, preserved and protected for the people, plants and animals that enjoy them every day.
