Every summer from Memorial Day until Labor Day, you can count on Coosa Riverkeeper to help your family get the skinny before you dip on the Coosa by testing water quality at popular places on the river. 

Our team starts sampling water quality conditions weekly starting May 21st and will provide free results to the public. Learn where we’re sampling this year near you, what our alerts mean, and how you can get the data weekly below. 

Our water quality alerts are just like a traffic light!
