NEIWPCC is skimming the cream of its publications for its new reprint series.
Four “old” magazine stories, on microfibers, nutrient pollution, the history of clean-water work in the Northeast, and managing stormwater runoff, are still fresh and relevant.
Now they have been reissued as stand-alone reprints.
Each story is available as a web page for easy browsing, as a printable PDF document, and in print from NEIWPCC.
The first four reprints are as follows:
- Runoff. “Soaking Up Contaminants: Innovative Prototype Park Tackles Runoff in Brooklyn NEIWPCC” Reprint 17-01 (4 pages). How a “sponge park” aims to keep pollutants from the Gowanus Canal in Brooklyn.
- Microfibers. “Microfibers in the Freshwater Environment” NEIWPCC Reprint 17-02 (4 pages). Plastic fibers emerge as a contaminant of concern.
- Nutrients. “Pollution from Everywhere: States Confront Nonpoint Source Pollution” NEIWPCC Reprint 17-03 (4 pages). Issues in nutrient pollution through the lens of Lake Champlain, Cape Cod, and Long Island Sound. A sidebar, “A Glut of Nutrients,” is a primer on nutrient pollution generally.
- History. “Ordering the Waters” NEIWPCC Reprint 17-04 (2 pages). Work begun in the 1940s continues to guide efforts for clean water.
