Trash is one of the most visible and abundant forms of pollution that our waterways and communities face today. Trash is a water quality issue, yet it is rarely treated as such. Who wants to swim, paddle, fish, or live near a waterway lined with trash? The Clean Water Act protects against water pollution – and trash pollution should be no exception.
In this webinar, we’ll hear from local groups who are putting their trash monitoring data to action by highlighting trash hotspots, categorizing types of trash, identify patterns, and advocating for change and protections to their waterways. Join us and learn how you too can use trash data and the Clean Water Act to take action!
