Potomac River Water Quality Exchange held February 27, 2014, by Potomac River Fisheries Commission

On February 27, 2014, in Colonial Beach, Virginia, the Potomac River Fisheries Commission held a Water Quality Information Exchange.  The event, which was open to the public, was held to allow staff from the Commission, the Virginia Department of Environmental Quality, and the Maryland Department of Natural Resources to share information about water-quality monitoring, current river conditions and habitat, clean-up efforts, and cooperation between commercial fish harvesters and state agencies.  The Commission was formed in 1958 to help facilitate management by Virginia and Maryland of fishery resources on the Potomac.  More information on the Commission is available from its Web site, http://prfc.us/index.html, phone (800) 266-3904, or e-mail: prfc@verizon.net.
