The Haw River Watch Project, sponsored by the Haw River Assembly, gives us a clearer picture of the health of the Haw River by determining the type and location of pollution sources. By conducting four seasonal “snapshot” surveys per year, River Watch volunteers document water quality across the tributaries and riverbanks of the Haw. Teams are trained and equipped to monitor water quality through biological, chemical, and visual parameters. Working with the Haw Riverkeeper, volunteers act as guardians of their streams and notify state agencies if water quality is threatened.

Interested in becoming a River Watch Volunteer? We will train you or your group. We ask all River Watchers to become members of the Haw River Assembly and contribute to the cost of their equipment. For more information contact emily@hawriver.org.
