The Connecticut River as it winds through Massachusetts

Boaters and swimmers can take comfort in knowing the Connecticut River is cleaner than it has been in years.  The Connecticut River Watershed Council monitors river contamination using volunteers who take samples at designated locations on the river.  WAMC’s Pioneer Valley Bureau Chief Paul Tuthill spoke with the council’s executive director Andrew Fisk.
