Connecticut River Water Quality Results Available Online

Volunteer collects river water samples for testing
Connecticut River Conservancy

       With the summer recreation season here, the Connecticut River Conservancy, formerly the Connecticut River Watershed Council, has launched a program to let people know if the river is clean enough to swim in. 

        This is the tenth year of the program that tests for contamination at more than 140 locations along the Connecticut River and its major tributaries, and puts the results online.

         WAMC’s Pioneer Valley Bureau Chief Paul Tuthill spoke with Andrea Donlon, the CRC River Steward in Massachusetts.

       The latest water quality results are available at www.ConnecticutRiver.us
