The City of Quincy’s Department of Natural Resources is teaming up with the Neponset River Watershed Association (NepRWA) to celebrate Earth Day 2021. Guest speaker Patrick Hogan of NepRWA will be giving a public presentation via Zoom at 12:00 noon on Thursday, April 22nd. The presentation will cover the importance of stormwater management, water pollution prevention tips, and information about ongoing water quality improvement projects in Quincy.
Hogan started with NepRWA in August 2019. He holds a BS in Crop & Soil Environmental Sciences and an MS in Environmental Science and Engineering, both from Virginia Tech. Prior to joining NepRWA, Hogan spent most of his career in municipal government working in the Public Works departments of both the City of Roanoke (VA) and the City of Durham (NC). At NepRWA, Hogan works on a regional basis to provide technical assistance with MS4-related issues to municipalities and businesses.
“Patrick is a great colleague who is very knowledgeable about water quality related issues. I anticipate that his presentation will be interesting and informative for all in attendance, especially as we take Earth Day as an opportunity to reflect on our impact on the planet and learn about ways we can work together to solve environmental issues,” said Julie Sullivan, Environmental Scientist with the Quincy Department of Natural Resources.
