Volunteer Water Quality Monitoring Networks at the Heart of Citizen Science Movement

Lately, citizen science initiatives have been getting noticed by laypeople and mainstream media outlets. As everyday people become aware of ways they can get involved in actual scientific research, more of them are doing so—especially teachers and parents working with children. But this citizen science wave isn't actually a new thing. It has been growing outward from its core in volunteer water quality monitoring networks for years. Around the country, volunteers have been quietly monitoring the water quality in lakes, streams, rivers, marshes, and other surface waterways for decades. These highly successful programs have been supporting better water quality in communities across America, and in doing so have also formed the heart of the modern citizen science movement.

Based on current litigation around the Illinois and Indiana shores of Lake Michigan, startlingly little has changed.

Monitoring the Mississippi: Wild Celery, Redhorse and More

The Upper Mississippi stretches from headwaters at Lake Itasca, Minnesota, all the way to Cairo, Illinois, about 1,250 miles. It includes picturesque wilderness areas complete with waterfalls, limestone bluffs and expansive valleys. It has attracted many campers, hikers, fishing enthusiasts and people seeking to launch their favorite boats or canoes. It has also been a haven for environmental researchers. Since 2016, Jeff Houser is the Science Director for the Long Term Resource Monitoring element (LTRM) of the Upper Mississippi River Restoration Program (UMRR).  Previously, he led the LTRM water quality component from 2003 until 2016.
