So what happens on Newtown Creek during a rainstorm? The honest answer might gross you out. In order to better understand water quality issues, the Newtown Creek Alliance installed weather stations on libraries throughout the Newtown Creek drainage area – or watershed – over the course of the past year. This “Weather in the Watershed” workshop will explore the weather data we are collecting from the roofs of public libraries throughout the Newtown Creek watershed, and learn what it tells us about conditions on the creek.
Join us March 19 at 4:30pm for a kickoff Weather in the Watershed program being held in support of World Water Day and the 2013 United Nations Year of International Water Cooperation at Sunnyside Library.
Are you interested in volunteering for Newtown Creek Alliance this year? We are seeking volunteers to support the Weather in the Watershed program! We will need help on programs throughout the watershed to interpret and analyze the weather data and monitor sewer overflows on rainy days! Reach out to firstname.lastname@example.org or better yet, come to this March 19th event!
Weather in the Watershed is a program that has been made possible through funding from NYCEF’s Newtown Creek Fund (Hudson River Foundation), and the Deutsche Bank Americas Foundation. This event is part of the Greening Libraries Initiative at Queens Library.
