Introducing our 2023 interns…

Allyson DiLorenzo will be helping to protect our drinking water. Using her R programming skills, she’ll improve our Emergency River Spill Model, a tool ICPRB uses to track a spill as it flows down the river. She’ll also be assisting in the coordination of the Potomac River Basin Drinking Water Source Protection Partnership, which is a collaboration of water utilities and government agencies focused on protecting sources of drinking water.

Allyson is originally from California. She is working on a Master of Science in Sustainability Management from American University where she promotes sustainability and inclusivity both on and off campus.

Kelly Davidson will be improving access to data and information about the Potomac River. She’ll enhance usability of ICPRB’s Water Quality Data Inventory, which lists available water quality data sources in the Potomac River watershed. She’ll also be ensuring our catalogue of publications is updated and archived correctly.

Kelly is working on her Master of Environmental Management at Duke University. During her college career, Kelly has worked to promote ecological conservation on campus through technical mapping work and getting her hands dirty by planting trees and removing invasive plants.
