Water Institute launches its new project; BACKDROP

Today, the Water Institute launched its new project BACKDROP at the Royal Bank of Canada Dublin. The project is part of the global programme of FreshWater Watch (sponsored by Royal Bank of Canada) is a global citizen scientist project investigating the health of the world’s fresh water on a scale never seen before. The aim of BACKDROP is to engage citizen scientists to measure water quality along different parts of the River Liffey on a monthly basis. All data is then collected and this data is analysed to seek to address specific local water challenges as well as gather data for global FreshWater Watch research. If you are an avid user of the River Liffey and would like to get involved please contact waterinstitute@dcu.ie
