History of World Water Monitoring Day

America’s Clean Water Foundation (www.acwf.org) held the first National Water Monitoring Day in 2002 to mark the 30th anniversary of the Clean Water Act. The event, which included monitoring and education programs, drew in more than 75,000 participants. The success of the event prompted America’s Clean Water Foundation to partner with the International Water Association (iwahq.org) to institute the first World Water Monitoring Day on October 18, 2003.
