UW-Madison Grad Monitoring Washington Island Beaches through UW Oshkosh Center

Recent UW-Madison graduate Sara Pabich is spending her summer monitoring beach water quality and testing for E. coli and other harmful bacteria on Washington Island. She’s one of several summer employees of the Environmental Research and Innovation Center at University of Wisconsin Oshkosh whose work is supported through the Freshwater Collaborative of Wisconsin. Her work is part of a statewide water quality program. She’ll enter a graduate program in public heath and public policy at UW-Madison this fall.
