Project Title & Description
Enhanced Fish Consumption Advisory in Buffalo Niagara Region
This project supports the Great Lakes Restoration Initiative and the Great Lakes Water Quality Agreement, pursuant to Public Law 111-88. Specifically, this project will allow the Buffalo-Niagara Riverkeeper and the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation to improve fish consumption advisories and outreach in the Buffalo River Area of Concern and Niagara River watershed. Current advisories will be revised to improve understanding of exposure information in high-risk communities. Local community and refugee outreach groups will collaborate to translate and distribute non-traditional outreach materials. This project will also improve understanding of fish consumption patterns.
