Alison - this is lovely, thenk you. I went to the site and tried to access the press release but it crashed my firefox browser, don't know why. The rest of the website, even without the PDF files, is full of interesting info and pictures.

My brother, a water quality expert, is working on a similar project for the Los Angeles river. I'll ask him to write a squib about this for Dove's Eye View.
