I have found Potomac Riverkeeper's staff to be highly dedicated, professional, and energetic. They all realize both the importance of their mission and the many obstacles that impede efforts to improve water quality in the Potomac River watershed. Despite the challenge and operating with limited resources, this team consistently made the most of their opportunities. I have been particularly impressed with their efforts to engage with community members to educate and to get them involved in improving our water quality.
