Watershed Roundtable - Sponsored by the Hudson River Watershed Alliance and the Hudson River Estuary Program: "Water Quality Datasets and How to Use Them: Case Studies on the Rondout Creek and Wallkill River" - March 28, 2014 at SUNY New Paltz

The goal of the Roundtable was to inform citizens, watershed groups and municipal officials/staff on the different types of water quality data available to them.  Datasets from the Wallkill River and Rondout Creek were shared to provide a context for how this data can be used and interpreted.  The afternoon began with presentations from three speakers on: physical/chemical water quality data, pathogen indicators, and macroinvertebrate water quality data.  The second half of the Roundtable included a wider discussion of the data and information presented and watershed group updates from throughout the Hudson River Basin.
