How’s the Water?
A Presentation and Call for Volunteers
When: February 16, 2012 at 7 p.m.
Where: Town of Esopus Library, 128 Canal St Port Ewen, N.Y. 12401
Join representatives from Riverkeeper’s Patrol Boat Program for a presentation about water quality in the Hudson River and its tributaries, including the Rondout Creek. Riverkeeper will also recruit volunteers to expand its water-quality testing program above the Eddyville Dam into the non-tidal portions of the Rondout Creek and Wallkill River.
For six years, Riverkeeper’s Patrol Boat and its scientific partners have been testing the water for sewage contamination and reporting the findings to the public at http://www.riverkeeper.org/
Questions and discussion will follow the presentation.
This volunteer effort is made possible in part by a grant from the UPS Foundation.
