Water Rangers protocol

When should I test?

Our official testing day is the last Sunday of every month! Testing on Friday, Saturday, or Monday of the same weekend is also encouraged if Sunday doesn’t work for you.

Whatever your reason for wanting to test water, it’s best to do so in an organized way! This is so you can make the most of your time and effort.

This protocol was designed for people using Water Rangers equipment, but can be used by anyone.

For more information on how to use the tools in your testkit, check out our training page.

I really enjoyed being a Water Ranger this summer. I have learnt so much about the local watershed, and surprised at the constancy of the results, which is deeply pleasing and shows that the ecosystem is well balanced. I have seen many other sites which I would like to test but time escapes me. Perhaps next year I can select different sites and see how they change over time.
