30 - CAPE GAZETTE, Friday, Nov. 8 - Nov. 14, 2002 Results better than expected during Water Quality Monitoring Day Group conducts tests Despite high winds and heavy rains from a quick passing nor'easter the day before, water quality results were better than ex- pected during testing that took place in Little Assawoman Bay to celebrate National Water Quality Monitoring Day. According to Eric Buehl, habi- tat coordinator for the Delaware Center for the Inland Bays, 'Ilae dissolved oxygen levels were a lit- tle on the low side, but the clarity of the water was pretty good con- sidering the recent rains, wind, and runoff from the watershed." Buehl was the principal organizer of the sampling event, conducted by a group of visiting estuary pro- gram representatives from across the coastal United States and Puerto Rico. The participants were in the area to attend the Association of National Estuary Programs' (ANEP) autumn meeting in Ocean City, Md., being cohosted by the Center fr the Inland Bays and the Maryland Coastal Bays program. "We worked closely with Kevin Donnelly, Division of Water Re- sources director at the Delaware Department of Natural Resources and Environmental Control (DNREC), to incorporate Nation- al Water Monitoring Day sam- piing with a scheduled canoe tour arranged by Ed Lewandowski, the Center for the Inland Bays' educa- tion and outreach coordinator," Buehl said. "We thought it would be both meaningful and a nice break from conference sessions and speak- ers." "We wanted to participate in the National Water Monitoring Day activities and it was only natural that we look to the Center for the in Little Assawoman Inland Bays," said Donnelly. 'q'hese people (from ANEP) deal with these many of these issues on a daily basis, but all too often they can't find the time to get out in the field to take samples and tour a watershed all in one day." The purpose of the National Water Monitoring Day is to in- crease awareness that water quali- ty is directly linked to use of the land and to celebrate the 30th an- niversary of the federal Clean Wa- ter Act, which was signed into law back in October of 1972. On hand to take the samples were estuary program representa- tives from California, Florida, Washington, New York, Maine and Maryland. Also helping with the sampling were representatives from the U.S. Environmental Pro- tection Agency (EPA). "I always use Delaware as an example of how people, groups, and govern- ment can cooperate to get great things accomplished," said Jim Butch, EPA project officer from their Philadelphia regional office. "Under Donnelly's leadership, this group is doing great things. Combine this with the-efforts of the Center for the Inland Bays and a lot of good work is getting done."
