Crowd the Tap directs the power of crowds to protect tap water. Crowd the Tap is an EPA-funded project that promotes access to safe drinking water by assisting individuals and groups with investigations of pipe materials that deliver drinking water to homes. Whether you want to organize at a local, city, or statewide level, and whether you consume tap water from a private well or a public water supplier, Crowd the Tap can help understand the pipes infrastructure and subsequent influences on the safety of the drinking water. No matter what types of pipes are in your water system (steel, copper, plastic, or lead), join Crowd the Tap to make sure your pipes get counted! This is the first project to engage and empower water consumers with investigating drinking water pipe infrastructure.
Join us online for an introduction to citizen science, to learn more about summer reading, and to learn how to participate in this citizen science project through a presentation and online Q&A.
