We’re all connected through our shared Watershed and ecosystem, and we are just as much a part of the water cycle as water. By caring for the greater environment, we are caring for our neighbors, family, and ourselves. In our Outdoor KnowYourH20 Path to Clean Water Program, water professionals, students, and citizens scientists can Get Informed and learn how we can ensure that our community drinking water and recreational water resources are safe and plentiful for ourselves and the other inhabitants of the planet. Access a variety of tools and resources for water testing and watershed monitoring in our Get Tools section. We offer online classroom and field environmental educational opportunities in our Get Training section. Get Connected with like minds through our newsletter and social media. Get Involved by joining us, other water professionals, students, and citizen scientists in sharing local environmental data globally, and in encouraging fact-based and not fear-based decisions. It is important to Know Our H20 and always remember, we all live downstream.
The first step on the Outdoor Path to Clean Drinking Water is our Get informed section where you can learn about the fascinating Watershed that we all share and depend upon. You can also review our Case Studies and collection of Powerpoint Presentations.
In this section you can Get Tools like our Water Quality Index Calculator for Surface Waters that you can use to monitor and determine the quality of surface waters such as wetlands, ponds, creeks, streams, rivers, lakes, seas, and oceans. In addition, we offer resources for students from grade school to college undergraduates and to anyone with a desire to expand their water knowledge.
In this section, we offer a mixture of online, classroom, and field environmental educational opportunities for future water professionals, citizen scientists, and those looking to expand their knowledge about water, water quality, and earth science. We hope that the training resources we offer will provide the foundation for fact-based grassroots environmental education and outreach.
We offer ways for you to Get Connected and interact with like minds that share the mission of clean drinking water. Join the conversation by following us on Facebook and Twitter and Join Our Email List to continue to stay informed and educated. Also, please feel free to send us an email to share your story and insights with the community. Also, spread the word about the mission of clean drinking water to family, friends, and colleagues.
We offer ways you can Get Involved. First off, we encourage you to become a Citizen Scientist! We’re also working on a program where you or your Citizen Scientist group can create a KnowYourH2O online account to manage testing data collected through our Water Quality Index Calculator for Surface Water. In addition, you’ll have the option to share your testing data to our Global Surface Water Quality Database that will monitor the water quality of our shared watershed. Finally, we also offer a Homeowner Outreach program to show you how to develop a neighborhood plan and launch a community event presentation.
The KnowYourH2O program is aligned with the Keystone Clean Water Team. KCWT is a 501(c)(3) non-profit, volunteer, environmental education organization that provides homeowners with information on private wells, drinking water quality and quantity, and septic systems. The KCWT is dedicated to protecting private well owners from illnesses caused by our drinking water. We encourage you to Donate, spread the word or Volunteer or start a local Keystone Clean Water Team in your community.
