(August 21, 2017) The ITRC Board headed to Rhode Island last week for their annual Summer Board Meeting. The meeting was held at the US EPA’s Atlantic Ecology Division (AED) Laboratory in Narragansett, which conducts research and predictive modeling to assess and forecast the risks of anthropogenic stressors to near coastal waters and their watersheds. The meeting consisted of two full days of ITRC business and productive brainstorming, and a half-day touring the lab facilities and learning about new research tools of interest to States.
