Creek Watch is an iPhone application that enables you to help monitor the health of your local watershed. Whenever you pass by a waterway, spend a few seconds using the Creek Watch application to snap a picture and report how much water and trash you see. We aggregate the data and share it with water control boards to help them track pollution and manage water resources. You can use the map on the left to explore the data that people have contributed, or see recent contributions as a table.

    If the only information submitted to the app is:
    – The amount of water: empty, some, or full.
    – The rate of flow: still, moving slowly, or moving fast.
    – The amount of trash: none, some (a few pieces), or a lot (10 or more pieces).
    – A picture of the waterway.

    How is the location obtained?

    Is there a way to delete spoof/junk submittals?

    Can the app be modified by a watershed group for getting information about that watershed, e.g. logjams?
