During this weekend’s Nanticoke Riverfest in Seaford, the Nanticoke Watershed Alliance will announce the results of a 5-year Nanticoke River Report Card. The results will be announced at 12:30 on Saturday. Recipients will see how the Nanticoke River has been graded over the past 5 years by the Nanticoke Watershed Alliance – and learn about the focus areas needed to ensure that the water quality is improved for use in the future. Some of the parameters – like water clarity are measured on site – but the report card will also address total nitrogen and phosphorus and studies bacteria data on the main part of the river from the Boat Ramp to Nanticoke, Maryland.
