Overview

The Aquatic Ecologist provides technical assistance for management and protection of aquatic resources in both the National Capital and Northeast Regions. These aquatic resources include streams, wetlands, floodplains, riparian corridors, and groundwater systems and the organisms that inhabit them.

The aquatic ecologist supports water resource preservation, protection, and management through research and partnerships and provides integration across ecoregions, states, and watersheds, including the Chesapeake Bay. She also supports parks in complying with the Chesapeake Bay Agreement and total maximum daily load limits for nitrogen, phosphorus and sediment.
