Master Water Stewards: Protecting water at a community level

Read the latest MWS impact report.

We are now accepting applications for the next class of Master Water Stewards!

Since Freshwater developed the Master Water Stewards program in 2013, 277 Stewards have been certified and are volunteering their time for watershed districts, cities, and environmental groups; participating on city and local government boards; influencing policy; and improving the health of our waters. To date, they have:

  • Connected with thousands of people through outreach and educational events
  • Installed or planned more than 100 projects, including rain gardens, rain barrels, cisterns, a dry creek bed, and a permeable driveway
  • Prevented millions gallons of polluted stormwater runoff from entering our lakes, rivers, and streams each year!
