What is Water Rangers?

To meet your freshwater testing needs CHEMetrics has partnered with Water Rangers. Water Rangers is a Canada-based organisation focused on empowering anyone to help protect the world’s natural water resources. With the tools and instructions included in a Water Rangers water test kit, anyone can gather reliable water quality data and log it in the Water Rangers data platform. This open data platform allows citizen scientists to contribute data gathered with Water Rangers products and makes your data available to other scientists and volunteers so they can use it in scientific pursuits.
