This includes Great Lakes as well as the tributary watersheds that drain into them. GLC projects and initiatives are directed at rural and urban settings, as well as on a watershed scale. Projects in rural settings focus primarily on water pollution from agricultural sources while projects in urban settings address municipal sources including urban runoff and discharges from sanitary and storm sewers. Addressing complex water quality challenges involves scaling up proven approaches and testing new ones. Water quality trading, Blue Accounting, and green infrastructure are examples of innovative approaches we are exploring to connect upstream and downstream water users. The Water Quality Senior Program Specialist will assist in all aspects of the GLC’s water quality program.
Specific Responsibilities

  • Research and writing to prepare reports, fact sheets, articles, memos, web pages, and social media communications;
  • Analyzing, aggregating and delivering data and information that support water quality projects;
  • Assisting with the establishment and ongoing operation of project teams (e.g., planning and organizing conference calls, in-person and online meetings; summarizing and reporting out on  discussions; working with managers to ensure appropriate follow up);
  • Staying abreast of science, policy, tools and techniques to augment  contributions to individual project teams and the GLC’s water quality program overall;
