Project Title & Description
Rocking the Boat Job Skills Apprenticeship Program
The purpose of this project is to educate apprentices on the causes, effects, prevention and reduction of water pollution in the Bronx River. Apprentices will learn data collection techniques and apply these in their sampling of the waterbody. In addition, the apprentices will provide results to the New York City Department of Environmental Protection to assist the local agency in identifying areas in the Bronx River and along the shoreline where solid waste materials need to be removed for proper disposal, thus improving the water quality of the river.
