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 with the League, and we can get a clear picture of water quality across the country – the first step in crafting water quality solutions that work. We can also help you restore your stream to good health.
We have divided up our monitoring options into modules below, so you can decided what to monitor based on your time, equipment, and training. The options below 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!
