Funded by the District Department of Energy and Environment (DOEE) (Grant# RFA 2018-1805-WQD-VWQM), Anacostia Riverkeepers run a citizen science water quality monitoring program in partnership with Alliance for the Chesapeake Bay, Audubon Naturalist Society, and Rock Creek Conservancy. Testing occurs weekly at 8 sites (from May through September) along the Rock Creek for bacteria, water temperature, air temperature, pH, and turbidity. The goal of this volunteer monitoring program is to provide valuable and accessible water quality data for residents and visitors, so they can make informed decisions before recreating.
