Informed and educated citizens can play a crucial role in the collection and analysis of water quality data along with advocating for aquatic resources. This module was developed to allow citizen scientists to export water quality data, summarize their information, and provide a template that allowed generation of reports. These reports include an executive summary, introduction to the watershed, summary of results, analysis and discussion of individual water quality parameters, notations, acknowledgments, references, and links to online data. This module provides another tool for Missouri citizen scientists to become better advocates for water quality of streams at the local level.
