Thames WaterBlitz @ Any waterbody in the Thames Catchment | England | United Kingdom

The WaterBlitz is a two-day event where volunteers in the Thames Valley collect as many water quality samples as possible. The purpose is to get an overview of the water quality in lakes, ponds and streams throughout the Thames Valley.

This is a fun learning experience for any volunteer that is interested in their local environment, and would like to learn more about water quality.

This WaterBlitz on 19th and 20th October will be the seventh such event and coincides with the regular Thames sample run undertaken by the Centre for Ecology and Hydrology (CEH) as part of a long-term monitoring programme of the Thames and its tributaries.

This year, we are running a two day WaterBlitz which coincides with the start of half-term for the majority of schools. We hope this will be a good opportunity for schools and families to join in with freshwater research.

Register today, test your local water and be a WaterBlitzer!
