The Fall 2021 issue of NEIWPCC’s “Interstate Waters” is now available, in both digital and print formats. The lead story focuses on wastewater-based epidemiology, examining how researchers and public health officials are tracing the spread of COVID-19 through wastewater.
Readers can also learn about the upcoming wave of retirements in the wastewater workforce, which will lead to critical staff shortages and the need for new operators to enter the industry. Other content includes a profile of NEIWPCC Environmental Analyst Daniel Miller, and his 20 years of experience with the Hudson River Estuary Program Habitat Restoration; scenes from NEIWPCC’s virtual Nonpoint Source Conference; and the Maine Stream Explorers, a new community science program that recruits volunteers to venture out in local streams to “prospect” for aquatic insects in an effort to better understand water quality.
“Interstate Waters” is published twice a year, and is available for downloading on the NEIWPCC website. NEIWPCC also welcomes and appreciates questions, comments, and story ideas for publication.
