WASHINGTON, Sept. 13, 2017 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- This September, explorer and environmental advocate Philippe Cousteau, Jr. and EarthEcho International invite you to take part in protecting one of your community's most precious resources?water. In celebration of World Water Monitoring Day on September 18, EarthEcho is providing online resources for monitoring and protecting the health of community water supplies, as well as sharing live broadcasts and updates from water monitoring events across the country. The World Water Monitoring Day tools and activities are part of the EarthEcho Water Challenge, an international program that equips anyone to combat the global water crisis starting in their own communities.
