Water watching is seeing a revival in the Mardi Gras City! Thanks to the efforts of Mobile Bay National Estuary Program and Dr. Mimi Fearn, former chair and faculty member in the Department of Earth Sciences  at University of South Alabama (retired), past president of the Dog River Clear Water Revival (DRCWR) and long-time water watcher and AWW water monitor trainer, the ranks of citizen monitors are growing as well as their watershed stewardship activities!
