Special Presentation: EPA Water Quality Buoy

Have you ever noticed the buoy in the Mystic River near the Blessing of the Bay Boathouse in Somerville? While deployed, this solar-powered buoy takes water quality measurements every 15 minutes and sends this information to the EPA website, allowing public access to near real-time conditions. On Tuesday, March 1st, hear from Tom Faber, Water Quality Environmental Engineer, US EPA, about the results of this program to date. This presentation is part of the Mystic River Watershed Association’s monthly Committee Meeting. The meeting begins at 7:00 p.m. on March 1, 2016 at Tufts University, Tisch College of Citizenship & Public Service, Lincoln Filene Hall, Rabb Room, 10 Upper Campus Road, Medford.
