Scientists work to preserve the Connecticut River

Sep 19th, 2013 | By | Category: Water

Three scientists at TNC — Rose Paul, Kathryn Kennedy, and Kimberly Lutz — are front and center in considering the Connecticut River, making sure all the components of biology and ecology, as well as usages for recreation and energy, are measured in what’s best for the river. And that’s key to creating a model of the whole Connecticut River watershed.

Emily Boedecker, deputy state director of TNC in Montpelier, said in a recent interview, “We are in the fourth year of a five-year project to develop a flow model for the river, so that all parties involved have the knowledge, opportunity and say in how the watershed could be managed. We have been working with 70 partners just in development.”
