Connecticut River Water Test Results Available Online

The Connecticut River as it winds through Massachusetts

As the summer recreation season begins, a program has begun to sample water at various places along the Connecticut River and test it for pathogens that could make people sick.  The program is managed by the Connecticut River Watershed Council.   WAMC’s Pioneer Valley Bureau Chief Paul Tuthill spoke with River Steward Andrea Donlon.

Water sampling test results are available at http://www.connecticutriver.us/
