I started college in upstate New York just as acid precipitation was becoming a significant environmental concern. Through my studies of aquatic ecology in the nearby Adirondacks, I learned firsthand how devastating its effects on water quality and aquatic life could be and was determined to do something about it. That determination launched my 30+ year career as a water quality manager working to protect and preserve our nation’s precious water resources.
