We have made it easier to find and report pollution -- and to report the fun things you see and do on the river. Working with Chesapeake Commons, we developed a mobile app, which is a Bay-wide initiative, to gather critical data on the waterways you love! The Water Reporter App for iPhone and iPad and for your Android is available for download for free! Version 3.0 came out October 2015 with great new features!

If you’re out and about and see debris flowing from a construction site, cows in your stream, or a pipe discharging questionable water, use the app to report it. Or if you are hiking, biking or paddling let us know and send photos & video. If your organization or group is planning a stream cleanup, tree planting, or any water related activity, please report those on the app as well! We will try to advertise far and wide.

Once your report is submitted it will be sent to your local Waterkeeper and to a live map available on the Water Reporter website. There are 19 local Waterkeepers in the Chesapeake Bay region waiting for your reports! You can also contact your local Waterkeeper directly to report pollution.
