Genesee RiverWatch hosted its 6th Annual Genesee River Basin Summit on May 7, 2019 at the Rochester Institute of Technology. The Summit topic was “A Report to the Community”. Regional experts provided updates on initiatives to improve water quality and connect people to the river. Topics included:
- Reporting and Planning
- Access and Recreation
- Outreach and Education.
We had 105 attendees including 19 presenters representing a wide variety of Genesee River basin stakeholders. They were impressed with the breadth and variety of projects and initiatives being pursued in the basin to improve water quality and use of the river. Several people said they also appreciated hearing from such a diverse group of presenters.
Attendees expressed interest in future workshops on streambank restoration and river access; and in hearing from a panel of elected officials.
