MWS was a co-author on an oral presentation and a scientific poster at the annual conference of the Maryland Water Monitoring Council on December 2, 2016. Jim Long, MWS president,  joined Kim Brandt of 1000 Friends of Maryland to describe how scientific monitoring served as a foundation for the advocacy that led to a new and more conservation-conscious comprehensive land-use plan in Charles County.

MWS volunteers co-authored with biologists from the Maryland Dept. of Natural Resources a poster Persistently elevated conductance in Mattawoman Creek & biological implications.

The conference was attended by more than 500 people representing federal, state, and local governments, academia, and watershed groups who are interested in understanding, conserving and restoring Maryland's waters.
