From 6:30-8pm, the VA DEQ will discuss a new study and (along with Wild Virginia) will provide information about causes of impairments on streams and what citizens can do to help.

Nesha McRae, TMDL Coordinator at VA DEQ, will share information about the department’s biological monitoring program and some of their findings in the South Fork Rivanna River watershed, including several streams in and around Crozet.

“Participants will learn how we identify problems with respect to stream health in our waterways, along with the process that we use in Virginia to improve stream health and water quality,” McRae said.

“The presentation will also include some information about how local stakeholders can get involved in this clean-up process, which will begin in the South Fork Rivanna River watershed this spring.”
