Riverwatchers test water
To this end we’ve pulled together several articles touching on various aspects of water quality on the Ottawa River. An interview with our Riverwatch Coordinator Meaghan Murphy by Patricia Montreuil reveals how Meaghan’s passion for plants and people led her from the halls of academia to Ottawa Riverkeeper’s Riverwatch Program. This past summer, Meaghan launched our water quality test program, training over 15 riverwatchers to take water quality samples from their reach of the river.
