The Izaak Walton League’s Save Our Streams (SOS) program helps people just like you check water quality in local creeks and streams.
Share your findings so we can get a clear picture of water quality across the country – the first step in crafting water quality solutions that work.
We divided our monitoring options into modules (see below) so you can decide what to monitor based on your time, equipment, and training. These options are listed in order of increasing time and intensity but do not need to be completed in any particular order. The more different types of monitoring you do, the more you know about your stream health!
