What’s New
• From lists, jump directly to a user’s profile, group collection, or watershed collection by tapping on the ellipsis next to their name. The same can be done for groups and watersheds.
• We streamlined how posts are made and added better link previews when you paste one to share.
• Links to posts and profiles can now be opened in the app from the web — and your email!

We’re always looking for ways to make Water Reporter better. Please feel free to get in touch if you have feedback or run into problems. We’re happy to help!

Ratings and Reviews

Great concept for sharing experiences on rivers


This is a really interesting app that lets anyone take pictures outdoors. The pictures are automatically geolocated and emailed to local environmental groups that want to keep apprised of activities on their rivers. It's cool because you don't have to do any work to find the environmental groups. It's perfect for using if you see a possible pollution source threatening water quality or something really interesting that you want to share. Plus, there is a website where you scroll through other posts, explore maps and learn about updates on reports you submitted. It's an effortless way for anyone to help protect waterways and watersheds.



This is app is really cool. It makes pollution reporting quick and easy. Glad to be helping Bay Waterkeepers and can't wait to see some maps from the data!

Easy to use and important

Jam man jam
