Water testing for everyone.

We've designed and distributed thousands of water quality testkits to people in 20 countries to collect community data on our free open-data platform, all with the goal of providing communities with the tools they need to take care of our lakes, rivers, and oceans.

How's your water quality?

Did you know that, according to WWF's Watersheds Report, over 60% of Canadian subwatersheds are so data poor, we don't even know if they're healthy or not! That's where you come in. We need your help to fill data gaps! We believe that crowdsourcing water quality data through citizen science is a great way to help scientists fill in gaps to achieve sustainable water monitoring.
