Dublin, Friday 20th September - Monday 23rd September

Help monitor the conditions in Dublin's freshwater sites! As a citizen scientist, you can help gather data on our waterways to contribute to our understanding of water health.

DCU Water Institute will be collecting water samples from the Liffey and other freshwater sites in coordination with FreshWater Watch. If you live along rivers, streams, ponds or lakes around Dublin or wish to travel to one and assist in gathering data on one of our most precious resources, we'd love your help. The water testing is very easy and sampling could be something to do with friends and family!

Free water testing kits will be provided to everyone who signs up and then participants can go and carry out simple and quick tests on any river, stream, lake or pond in their area and upload their results using an app. We will then use this data to gain an insight into water quality around Dublin and create an event report for all the participants. This event is being run by DCU Water Institute and EarthWatch alongside events in London, Paris and Luxembourg and offers a real chance for you to make a difference and ensure the continual monitoring and safety of water bodies around Dublin.
