River Watch collects a multitude of water quality data statewide. These data are instrumental in crafting informed water resources policy in addition to education citizens about the health of streams in their own backyards. Our data is additionally used internally to generate watershed reports for hundreds of watersheds statewide. These watershed reports as well as the raw data used to create them can be found and easily downloaded here.
We are firm believers in access to data. All River Watch data is publicly available on the Colorado Data Sharing Network, National Water Quality Portal and is delivered to the WQCD for their annual hearing data calls.Without access to data, we cannot craft sound policy and empower citizens to help protect what makes Colorado such a special place – its beautiful rivers and streams!
