Data Centers, Solar Fields, and Water Resources

Did you miss last week’s webinar exploring the intersection of water resources, data centers, and solar fields in the Potomac River watershed? Catch it now on our YouTube page. Presentations included:

  • Utility Scale Solar Institutions in Virginia
  • Environmental Impacts of Industrial Scale Solar and Solutions
  • Loudoun Water’s Reclaimed Water System in the Heart of Data Center Alley

Stay tuned for future webinars covering topical matters of water resources importance. The webinars are part of the implementation of the Potomac Basin Comprehensive Water Resources Plan.

What to celebrate this week: National Love a Tree Day and Bike to Work Day

National Love a Tree Day is today. Did you know 53% of the Potomac watershed is forested? Love a tree by joining a tree planting event near you with groups like Casey Trees (DC) or Streamlink Education (MD).

Bike to Work Day is tomorrow. Air pollution impacts water quality by running into our streams and rivers when it rains. Skip the car for your morning commute and hop on your bike. Stop by a ‘pit stop’ for food, prizes, and camaraderie.
