On October 4, DRBC's Environmental Toxicologist Dr. Ron MacGillivray presented to Stevens Institute of Technology students as part of its Sustainability Seminar Series. The presentation, entitled Monitoring Water Quality to Ensure Sustainability, was also offered as a webinar that was open to all online.

Dr. MacGillivray's talk provided an overview of DRBC's various water quality monitoring programs and why they are important to ensure sustainability in the region. The concept of sustainability means that the needs of the present are met without compromising the needs of future generations. Protecting water quality for present and future generations is integral to DRBC's regulatory approach to attain and sustain healthy waters.

This was Dr. MacGillivray's first time participating in the Sustainability Seminar Series, which is organized by the Stevens Institute of Technology's Sustainability Management Master's Program. Dr. MacGillivray met Dr. Dibs Sarkar, the program's director, through his involvement with the Hudson Delaware Chapter of the Society of Environmental Toxicology and Chemistry.
