Join EPA on Feb. 25 for a Webinar Highlighting Scientific Report on Conditions of U.S. Coastal Waters!

February 18, 2016

Good News! U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s recently released National Coastal Condition Assessment 2010 report shows U.S. costal waters are a mix of good and fair health! EPA will hold a Webinar on Feb. 25 at 1 pm to 3 pm to highlight the key findings from the NCCA 2010 report, so save the date!

The report presents that more than half of the nation’s coastal and Great Lakes nearshore waters are rated good for biological and sediment quality, while about one-third are rated good for water quality. In almost all coastal waters, however, contaminants in fish tissue pose a threat to sensitive predator fish, birds, and wildlife. The National Coastal Condition Assessment is part of a series of National Aquatic Resource Surveys designed to advance the science of monitoring and answer critical questions about the condition of waters in the United States.

To learn more about the NCCA 2010 report and the National Aquatic Resource Surveys that provide information on lakes, rivers and streams, coastal waters and wetlands, please join EPA for this Watershed Academy Webinar: http://www.epa.gov/water…/watershed-academy-webcast-seminars
