Hudson River Watershed Alliance invites you to this Watershed Breakfast Series event featuring Riverkeeper’s Jennifer Epstein, Senior Community Science Manager.

More than 10 years ago, a kid smelled sewage in the Sparkill Creek, and asked what the adults would do about it. Water quality sampling by Riverkeeper near the mouth of the Sparkill Creek later that year confirmed high levels of fecal indicator bacteria. This talk will explore what Riverkeeper, the Sparkill Creek Watershed Alliance, and partners have learned about water quality in the creek, and both the promise and limitations of community data in inspiring action 50 years after the passage of the Clean Water Act.
