Event World Water Monitoring Day

On October 18th 2006, tens of thousands of people in more than 50 countries will celebrate World Water Monitoring Day (WWMD). The event, which is organized jointly by the Water Environment Federation  and the International Water Association aims to bring public attention to the role that the world's citizens must play in ensuring a sustainable supply of clean, usable water in each and every country. Participants will test the quality of rivers, lakes and other water bodies using a simple monitoring kit. All the water quality data from around the world is collected in the WWMD database, which provides a unique snapshot of the state of the world's water. You can take part by registering one or more monitoring sites in your area on the World Water Monitoring Day web site.
IWA has a limited number of free water monitoring kits available for participants in low income countries.  If you would like more information about World Water Monitoring Day, or if you are interested in receiving free monitoring kits for WWMD activities in your country, email Dr. Darren.saywell.
