Arizona Water Watch

Revised On: Oct. 2, 2023 - 9:00 a.m.

As a desert state, water is one Arizona's most precious resources that people and animals rely on to live and vital to our recreational enjoyment as well. Arizona Water Watch (AZWW) is an ADEQ program driven by volunteers, offering Arizona residents and visitors (age 10+) various ways to help us monitor the health of our waters and inform measures to protect it for future generations.

Calling All Citizen Scientists to Volunteer!

AZWW's volunteer program is for children (age 10+), teens, college students, adults, retirees and ADEQ scientists to work together on scientific research and environmental protection of Arizona waters. Some of the ways you can join as a volunteer include:

Water Quality Sampling
