We have ported most of the recent Stream Steward data to http://www.monitorwater.org/ and you can now click on your site and various graphs will pop up showing your data. It is still a bit of a work in progress, however, we think you will find it very helpful to see your data alongside much of the rest of the world in real time.
E. coli data has not been completely added as of yet, but you should start to see some of that information slowly appear over time.
If you see any errors in data that is post, please be sure to let us know via e-mail.
Stream Stewards – #BC-08
It’s time for a Stream Steward gathering again.
Gather with your fellow Stream Stewards and share your recent experiences out in the field. We will also discuss what some of your needs and goals are while participating in the Stream Steward program. We are looking to offer some advanced topic training this winter, and potentially a fish hatchery tour. Meet some of the new Stream Stewards or reconnect with the ones you haven’t seen in a while.
We will meet in the community space behind the Starbucks inside the QFC grocery store and KCD will supply some light appetizers from the QFC deli.
Both Newaukum and Boise creeks are seeing fish return.

Join the King Conservation District for an afternoon of learning about water quality monitoring. A limited number of attendees will be able to take home a free Basic Water Quality Monitoring Kit to test their own streams or ditches for four parameters: Temperature, pH, Turbidity and Dissolved Oxygen. Also, you will learn how to share your data on the monitorwater.org web site. Connect and share with other citizens in your neighborhood.
Where: Farmers Park, Enumclaw View Map
Who: Anyone interested in conducting water quality monitoring tests on their property to share via monitorwater.org and also meet other volunteers with the KCD Stream Steward Program.
Why: To learn how water quality affects stream health.
What we will do: Teach you how to use the LaMotte Basic Water Quality Kit and enter your data online. Bring your camp chair and ask questions of current KCD Stream Stewards. Find out how you can raise awareness about water quality in your neighborhood.
