The NY Water Sentinels work with local citizen groups, university labs, and other water testing programs to recruit, train, support, and coordinate ongoing monitoring. The training of NY Water Sentinels volunteers is conducted by ALLARM, (Alliance for Aquatic Resource Monitoring), a citizen science organization based out of Dickinson College.
Since December of 2011, the NY Water Sentinels have organized and trained 6 regional groups. To date, 160 volunteers have made over 1,500 visits to document conditions at 125 stream sites. Streams being monitored span 12 counties and 6 major watersheds across the Southern Tier. See our Project Status page for details.
