A WaterBlitz is a FreshWater Watch activity for the whole community. Usually hosted over one weekend, members of the public can sign up to receive a free water testing kit and become citizen scientists by testing a water body local to them. The data collected by hundreds of people over this same time period gives us an accurate and comparable snapshot of water health within a region. Learn more with our WaterBlitz leaflet.
The WaterBlitz runs in the Bristol-Avon catchment and Thames Valley in the UK, as well as Sweden, Italy, France, Ireland and Luxembourg.
