River revival: Mohawk advocates gathering support

Publication Date


Union will host the annual Mohawk Watershed Symposium Friday, March 20, at College Park Hall.

This year’s theme is clean water and improving water quality in the watershed.

Now in its seventh year, the daylong symposium features dozens of oral and poster presentations on topics including flooding, fish and water quality, watershed management, climate change and water rights.

The conference is sponsored by the Geology Department and organized by John Garver, geology professor, and Jaclyn Cockburn, a former Union professor now at the University of Guelph , Ontario.

The Sunday Gazette recently did a story on some of the issues to be discussed at the symposium.
