Dedicated to Community-Based Watershed Stewardship through Citizen Volunteer Monitoring

The Alabama Water Watch Program Office will close on Wednesday, December 20, 2017 and will re-open on Tuesday, January 2, 2018 for Winter Holiday. 

Alabama Water Watch (AWW) is a citizen volunteer, water quality monitoring program covering all of the major river basins in Alabama. Our vision is to have a citizen monitor on every stream, river, lake, and coast in Alabama.

AWW is a program of the Auburn University Water Resources Center and receives support from multiple sources including the Alabama Cooperative Extension System, the Alabama Agricultural Experiment Station, grants from various governmental and private agencies, and contributions from individuals and groups throughout the state.


We invite you to take a few minutes to view AWW’s award winning video, produced in 1998 and digitally enhanced and updated in 2010. Learn about key individuals and efforts that provided a solid foundation for the AWW Program.


The success of AWW depends on the volunteerism and commitment of Monitoring Groups. Support to monitoring groups, the program and the association is funded, in part, through membership dues, gifts and services.  Check out our video to see why it is important for you to consider supporting AWW.
