Saturday Stream Snapshot is a citizen science, volunteer water monitoring program designed to identify nutrient issues polluting the Little Miami River.

SSS collects baseline water quality information once a month as part of Ohio EPA’s Credible Data Program. SSS data are used to inform regional municipalities and educate residents about water quality issues and what they can do to preserve, protect and improve water quality in the Lower Little Miami Watershed.

Get involved!  SSS is an easy, rewarding way to help the river we love.

SSS: What, Why and How

What is Saturday Stream Snapshot?

Why is Saturday Stream Snapshot important?

A project of the Izaak Walton League of Cincinnati, in collaboration with Cincinnati MSD (Metropolitan Sewer District), Clermont County Soil & Water Conservation District, and with funding from the Ohio Environmental Education Fund of the Ohio EPA.

Volunteers are needed to restart the award-winning Saturday Stream Snapshot and to help educate residents about ways we can preserve and protect the Lower Little Miami River.
