One Drop Story - Nina Ridhibhinyo

ECHO's Group Programs Manager Nina Ridhibhinyo shared her One Drop story - this is something staffers to do talk about ways they're working to help in our mission. We believe it takes just one drop to create a lasting ripple effect to ultimately change the world.

Nina is participating in a water quality sampling project in the Huntington River. Starting at 6:30 this morning, she and other volunteers took to the river to collect water samples to be tested for E.coli and phosphorus at the state's Larosa Water Quality Lap. This practice has taken place for the past 13 years, done weekly to learn more about the presence of these harmful substances.

Coordinated by the towns of Huntington and Richmond, and called the Huntington River Conservation Partnership, the project relies on volunteers to help us learn more about local waterways.

You can see last year's data and follow along to learn why this data collection is so important to our state's health.
