NEW Water held its 4th annual Student Monitoring Event with students from Oneida Nation High School and Bay Port High School.  The student monitoring initiative is part of NEW Water’s Silver Creek Project, where best management practices are being installed in a 4,800-acre watershed.  For this educational component of the project, NEW Water and Oneida Nation staff engaged students in activities including water monitoring, drone technology, and biological monitoring to determine the health of a body of water.  Northeast Wisconsin Technical College provided pro bono classroom space in their new Great Lakes Energy Education Center for the event launch; Amy Kox, Associate Dean of Energy & Sustainability, provided students with information on courses offered at the college in environmental fields.
