New WV Stream Watch App Helps Citizen Scientists Document Water Pollution

WV Rivers and Trout Unlimited have developed a new component to our monitoring program – a smart phone enabled Stream Watch App! The App is a quick and effective tool to document erosion and sedimentation, water quality impacts, and habitat issues.

Citizen scientists can easily submit photos of water pollution or habitat degradation. The photographic data will populate an interactive map that will inform follow-up on enforcement actions or restoration needs.

To learn how to download and use the WV Stream Watch App check out the video above.
