Atlantic DataStream’s regional partner, Community Based Environmental Monitoring Network, is rebranding its water work under the “Atlantic Water Network.” We’re excited to reveal their new logo and branding on Tuesday June 7 at the Atlantic DataStream Kickoff event in Halifax, NS.
Atlantic Water Network (AWN) was founded in 2004 by Dr. Cathy Conrad of Saint Mary’s University in Halifax. AWN works to increase environmental stewardship capacity in Nova Scotia, New Brunswick, Prince Edward Island and Newfoundland and Labrador.
AWN provide support and resources to organizations across Atlantic Canada including equipment loans from the Environmental Equipment Bank, free WET-PRO training workshops and, of course, providing open-access data about freshwater health through their regional Atlantic DataStream partnership.

What happens to water data after it has been collected by community monitoring groups?
With support from the RBC Foundation and WWF Canada, DataStream is now leveraging blockchain technology to offer a level of data security and transparency not seen on any other water platform.
Atlantic DataStream kicked off on World Environment Day (June 5, 2018) with a two-day conference and celebration in Halifax, NS. More than 100 community-based water monitors joined us from across Nova Scotia, New Brunswick, Prince Edward Island and Newfoundland and Labrador.
