Do you like to roll up your pants and hike the beach?  It’s best to know if there are any water quality issues at your favorite spots – here is a project that will help you understand the health of our beaches and nearshore waters.

The public is invited to a presentation by Vince Pappalardo at the MidCoast Watersheds Council meeting on Thursday January 5th, 2017 at 6:30 pm in Newport, to learn about the Newport chapter of the Surfrider Foundation and their Blue Water Task Force. The meeting will be held in the public meeting room at the Central Lincoln PUD building, located at 2129 N Coast Hwy in Newport, across from the Safeway complex.  Refreshments will be served.

Vince Pappalardo holds a Bachelor’s of Science in Mechanical Engineering from San Jose State University and has been a professional Mechanical Engineer for the last 29 years. However, his passion is surfing and he has a deep love of the ocean. To support his passion, Vince has been an active member of the Newport Surfrider Chapter for the last 10 years. In that time, he has served as the Beach Cleanup Coordinator, Blue Water Task Force Coordinator and now holds the position of Volunteer Coordinator.

Vince’s presentation will focus on the work done by the Newport Surfrider Foundation testing local water quality, cleaning up beaches and shaping local marine policy.  There will be an emphasis on the water quality testing work in terms of what is tested, where tests are done, and the current state of water quality at the 5 to 10 sites tested weekly.
