About Atlantic Water Network
Atlantic Water Network (AWN) is Atlantic Canada’s hub for community-based water monitoring. For nearly two decades, AWN has supported a growing network of over one-hundred community partner organizations throughout Atlantic Canada in all aspects of water quality monitoring. AWN achieves this by creating shared learning opportunities, offering tailored technical supports, and promoting local water priorities at both regional and national scales.
AWN is the regional lead for Atlantic DataStream, an open-access water quality database.
Atlantic Water Network is a project on Makeway’s shared platform, which provides operational supports, governance, and charitable expertise for changemakers. The shared platform enables more time and money to go towards achieving greater impact. MakeWay is a national charity that builds partnerships and solutions to help nature and communities thrive together.
Atlantic rivers, lakes and wetlands are healthy and stewarded by local communities in the long term.
