River Water Quality Event Set For April 12

Riverfront Fort Wayne is kicking off a new Riverfront Education Series with a panel discussion about river water quality on April 12 at 6:30 p.m. The discussion takes place at Calhoun Soups Salads & Spirits (CS3), 1915 South Calhoun St., and the event is free and open to the public.

The guest panelists include Frank Suarez, City Utilities; Dr. Robert Gillespie, IPFW Biology Department; Matt Jones, Allen County Partnership for Water Quality; and Dan Wire, Tri-State Watershed Alliance.

The discussion will revolve around the quality of water in our three rivers and what is being done to improve that water quality. Guests will be invited to ask questions and share their ideas for improving the water quality of our rivers.

Riverfront Fort Wayne hosts regular programs and events as part of a three-part effort to build support for revitalizing the downtown riverfront. Programming, maintenance and development are all part of the City’s and its partners’ plans to create a downtown riverfront that is a regional destination and source of pride for all of northeast Indiana.
