Clean Water Congress Reports
The Environmental Study Team program has been teaching middle school and high school students the science of water quality monitoring since 2002. They learn the same methods that the NY State DEC uses to gauge the health of the water, using the same equipment and materials as the DEC. They collect data from sites along the Schoharie Creek, the Normanskill Creek and other locations in the area.
Over the years, the Environmental Study Team has published their scientific findings in various reports, most notably the Clean Water Congress Reports. The Clean Water Congress Reports were one part of an annual environmental competition of regional schools held by the Hudson Basin River Watch.
