Water Reporter makes easy work of Reporting Pull Results, Logging a Scouting Mission or Logging a New Infestation. Each water chestnut steward and monitor will need their own Water Reporter account to start contributing to the interactive map. Contributions can be made via computer or through the phone app. Once you login to your account, select the form that best fits your event.  Every time you fill out a form it will automatically update the stations on the map!

The water chestnut is a rooted, floating aquatic plant. It is an annual plant not native to the United States, categorized as an invasive species in the Connecticut River Watershed. It is fast growing and quickly reproducing. If left unattended it will easily cover an entire waterbody. 

Water chestnut infestations have been found in each of the four states – CT, MA, NH, VT, that the CT River travels through. To learn more about the origins of water chestnut and removal efforts in the CT River, visit our What is Water Chestnut page!

Cyanobacteria Information:

Cyanobacteria can produce toxins harmful to humans, pets and livestock. If you see, or you suspect you see cyanobacteria, leave the site immediately and let us know via water reporter. Staff and volunteer safety is a priority.

Coming Soon!

This tool will be used in a variety of ways.  Use the space forum to post questions to the group, start conversations about supplies or techniques, and share success stories! We hope that this forum can reduce the number of emails clogging your inboxes by centralizing communication and providing a space for communication across the watershed!
