Milwaukee Riverkeeper: Keeping Freshwater Fresh

August 9, 2023

12:00 pm – 1:00 pm
Location: Webinar

The Milwaukee Riverkeeper team helped pilot a statewide citizen monitoring protocol for chloride in 2010. They have continued monitoring salt levels in local streams ever since. Their data has identified and led to the listing of over 117 miles of impaired streams in the Milwaukee River basin. Cheryl Nenn will discuss Riverkeeper's multi-pronged approach to protecting the rivers of Southeast Wisconsin through increased monitoring, professional trainings, public outreach, and policy change.
