Water Quality Monitoring

Environment & Conservation

Algae blooms, caused by excess nutrients, afflict 15,000 fresh water bodies Miami Waterkeeper is responding to the lack of almost all sewage bacteria monitoring in Biscayne Bay by launching a water quality monitoring program with routine, weekly testing for the sewage bacteria. If water quality issues are detected, we follow up our sampling with source tracking DNA tests and alert local agencies and recreational groups, acting quickly to address pollution. Our water quality lab is located at Ransom Everglades School in Coconut Grove where students actively participate in collecting and processing samples.
