John Preyer and our partner in Virginia, Brent Fults, of the Chesapeake Bay Nutrient Land Trust, visited Duke University and Blue Devil country last week to see well regarded state and national water quality regulator Ellen Gilinski speak on nutrient problems. Ellen is formerly the Director of the Water Division at the Virginia Department of Environmental Quality (DEQ) and now Senior Policy Advisor at the EPA. She did not disappoint and gave a fine summary of the challenges and opportunities in water quality and nutrient regulation.
Very good as well to see Duke’s Nicholas School of the Environment place these visiting talks on the web. Makes parking much easier.
