Welcome to Global Water Watch



Global Water Watch (GWW), is a voluntary network of community based water monitoring (CBWM) groups. The overall goal of GWW is to foster watershed stewardship through the development of citizen volunteer monitoring of surface waters for the improvement of both water quality and public health. GWW helps communities establish teams of citizens who measure physical, chemical and biological indicators of watershed fitness. Monitors use their data for protection and restoration of watersheds, streams and lakes, advocacy for the improvement of drinking water quality and public health, and to implement environmental education programs for the public.

Global Water Watch has three, main components. One is the GWW Program that is based at Auburn University (AU) and coordinated through the AU Water Resources Center. The program receives support from the Alabama Cooperative Extension System, the Alabama Agricultural Experiment Station, and grants from various governmental and private agencies. Another component is GWW Inc., a legally incorporated and tax exempt nonprofit (501.c.3) organized exclusively for charitable, educational, and scientific purposes. GWW, Inc. receives financial support from governmental and nongovernmental grants, membership dues, and donations. A third component is the GWW-based organizations in Member Countries. Some of these organizations are legally incorporated for specific GWW activities (such as GWW-Mexico), and others are coordinated from other organizations and agencies with related missions.
