Paul Bukaveckas, Ph.D. featured speaker at regional meeting
March 4, 2015
The Virginia Water Environment Association hosted Dr. Paul Bukaveckas at their February meeting as the featured speaker; he provided an update on the recent findings of the ongoing James River Chlorophyll-a Study. Dr. Bukaveckas chairs the Science Advisory Panel on this study, which has been tasked by DEQ to determine defensible criteria for chlorophyll-a that will protect water quality and prevent harmful algal blooms. The outcome of this study may have a significant impact on WWTPs and MS4s in the James River basin, as it will shed light on the appropriateness of the nutrient load allocation for the James River Basin.
