A great way to share water quality findings and elevate issues that impact local water quality is with a letter to the editor.

To send a letter to the editor, navigate to the website of your chosen news publication and find the link to "Submit A Letter" (often under the "Opinions" tab). Many publications will ask you to fill out an online form including your contact information and the content of your letter. Be mindful of word/character limits - letters to the editor are typically limited to around 250 words.

Feel free to start from a template! We've created template letters to the editor for Salt Watch and Nitrate Watch volunteers, which can be found at the links below.

You are encouraged to edit these templates and make them your own! Letters that are more personal and specific to your community are more likely to be published.
