Projects - Floating Workshops 2005

floating workshopOnce again the TRBP held a successful annual Floating workshop this past June. This year's workshop was held in Thompson and included a sediment sampling demonstration in West Thompson Lake.  DEP Commissioner Gina McCarthy was the keynote speaker and shared her vision for Connecticut's future. Thanks to the town of Thompson we began the workshop in the town library and then we headed out to West Thompson Lake. With an assortment of boats including craft from Project Oceanology and the USGS we were educated on the challenges faced by the USGS in sampling the lake's sediments to determine what role the lake plays in the contribution of excess phosphorus to the Thames river.
