Penn State Extension Water Cooler Talk - A Salty Situation In Our Streams- May 26

On May 26,
Penn State Extension will host another in its series of online Water Cooler Talks, this one focused on-- A Salty Situation In Our Streams from Noon to 1:00 p.m.

A growing body of research suggests that increasing amounts of salt ions are changing the chemistry of freshwater streams across the nation, including in Pennsylvania. 

The changes in the chemistry of aquatic ecosystems can have a profound impact on the critters that live in them and the people and economies that rely on them. 

This presentation will summarize the state of the science, sources, impacts, and potential solutions to the salinization of streams in the Commonwealth and beyond.

Speakers will include--

-- Tyler Groh, Assistant Research Professor, Penn State Extension

-- Harry Campbell, PA Science Policy and Advocacy Director, Chesapeake Bay Foundation
