Milwaukee Riverkeeper's strives to maintain a watershed-wide network of trained citizen volunteers who monitor streams and rivers in the Milwaukee River Basin, collecting water quality data in a consistent and useable format. We use this data to inform decision making both for regulatory and management decisions, as well as for educational purposes. We also train volunteers to identify potential sources of pollution, and work collaboratively to find solutions to these problems.
