1000 Eyes on the Water

Report a pollution incident here


Have you ever seen something on the water that didn't look quite right? Maybe you wanted to report it, but didn’t know how to describe it, or how to report. It can be hard to know what's safe and what's a problem for our waterways, and it can be hard to know who to call to report an issue.  Our 1000 Eyes on the Water program trains you to be a champion for your waterways by training you how to observe, document, and report pollution that you might see going about your daily life.


Here are some examples of what we want you to look out for:
  • Algae blooms
  • Sedimentation
  • Leaking dumpsters
  • Rare and endangered species like smalltooth sawfish
  • Illegal dumping
  • Oil slicks
  • Fish kills


To join the 1000 Eyes on the Water team, attend one of our upcoming trainings:

All 1,000 Eyes on the Water Trainings have been postponed due to COVID-19 precautionary measures. Please stay tuned for new digital formats and future trainings!

We have a virtual 1,000 Eyes on the Water training being released this summer, a great way to learn something new and get your family involved.

Contact us and let us know about your interest and we can arrange a special training in your community for you, virtually as well!
