Sandra LaVigne, Director of Water Quality Programs at the Great Swamp Watershed Association, will present a brief talk on water quality in our region. Topics include the various ways pollution makes its way into our waterways, the types of contaminents we see in our water, what we test for, the results of recent testing and what we can do to improve the quality of our water.
Sandra will present the newly released 2017 GSWA Water Quality Report Card, including the new Downstream Passaic River expansion. The report card shows the status of streams and rivers throughout the Great Swamp Watershed and in the region of the Passaic River between Millington Gorge and Stanley Ave Park in Chatham and Summit. Sandra will also address how our own actions can affect water quality, and what simple life choices we can make to help preserve the quality of water that makes its way to our tap.
