Participating in the Salt Watch program? Learn how to share the chloride data you collect on the Clean Water Hub database.

Note: Salt Watch data used to be reported on the Water Reporter app. As of Fall 2023, Salt Watch data submission is migrating to the Clean Water Hub.

  1. Follow the prompts to create a new account OR click "log in" if you already have an account in the Hub.

  2. Click "Create Salt Watch reading"

  3. Select an existing site from the dropdown menu or click "Create a New Site"

  4. Fill out the form for your site. When you are finished, double-check all fields and click "Save Changes."

That's it!

My chloride readings were lower than 30 parts per million (ppm) or higher than 634 ppm. The numbers on the conversion chart don't go that low or that high. What should I do?

If you get levels that are “off the charts” (in either direction), you should still report your results. Results below the range of the conversion chart should be reported as 25 ppm and results over the range of the conversion chart should be reported as 750 ppm.

For levels that are above the chart's range, you can also order high-range test strips, which measure levels from 600 to 3,000 ppm.
