Virginia Citizens for Water Quality Collaborate at Annual Summit

On November 8, the 2014 VCWQ Annual Summit brought together 60 attendees to focus on successful programs and projects to help clean Virginia’s waterways.

One highlight of the summit was a presentation on a new approach to denitrification by two Freeman High School students, Colin Fenster and Jack Lohmann. Their novel multi-stage denitrification system has won them several awards and the praise of attendees at the summit.

One of the best things about this summit was that it addressed actions that are being taken or can be taken, so instead of the usual dismal feeling I get on environmental issues, this one gave me some hope.

Other topics included the Virginia Conservation Assistance Program, using report cards to encourage action, and a tour of greening practices on Randolph Macon College’s campus.
