From it’s humble beginnings, Streamwatch started with a trial of 15 schools in 1990. Since it all began, there have been over 1,100 Streamwatch groups who have monitored water quality at over 1,060 sites, and have contributed to almost 31,000 data sets on the online database.
These groups have been spread across greater Sydney, the Blue Mountains, Illawarra and Southern Highlands regions.
This is valuable work that influences what happens to incredibly important parts of our landscapes. If you’d like to get involved and make a difference, head to their website to find out more!
