Program focuses on quality of the Williams River

Frank Kelley testing the Williams River in 2012

Water quality monitoring  samples have been collected along the Williams River for many years. Ryan O’Donnell, water quality coordinator for the Southeastern Vermont Watershed Alliance and the Connecticut River Conservancy, will present the results of several years of monitoring studies from the river during an online Zoom discussion at 6:30 p.m. on Wednesday, Feb. 9.

The presentation will focus on trends and what the results can tell us about the health of the river . As we learn about water quality in the Williams River,  watershed groups in the region would like to hear ideas about  what  projects the community is interested in to help protect water quality in our river.
