February 2020
The February issue of Interstate Waters explores how Connecticut helped municipalities and others to comply with its latest general permit for stormwater systems. Another story looks back at the gains the region has made reducing airborn mercury, and ahead at trends that threaten that progress. Reports detail the work of NEIWPCC workgroups, the status of federal legislation and regulation affecting water programs, and other news of water in the Northeast.

September 2019
The September, 2019, issue tells how NEIWPCC boat-launch stewards in New York and Vermont are fighting invasive aquatic species, one boat at a time. Another feature story travels up the Hudson River to visit all four stewardship sites of the Hudson River National Estuarine Research Reserve, with a stop at the Reserve’s headquarters at Norrie Point.

The issue also brings news of recent issues in water-operator certification, PFAS, federal efforts to weaken water protections, and other developments.

March 2019
“Taking Out the Trash” reports on work to reduce aquatic trash by local organizations in New York and New Jersey. The projects were funded and administered by NEIWPCC and executed largely by volunteers including primary school students from Brooklyn.

Other stories look back at a decade of training wastewater managers, and describe the ongoing work that state agencies are doing on common these such as stormwater, wetlands, and PFAS. We also check in with EPA Region 2 Administrator Peter Lopez.
