The good folks at GLIER are cooperating with the regional health unit and local municipalities to provide the latest information on COVID-19 presence in wastewater. This is crucial during the global pandemic since monitoring lets the public know the extent of rise and fall of the virus in our community.

Wastewater monitoring can be a leading indicator of local health. With this in mind, GLIER is making its mark by helping to navigate our way through the biggest public health crisis in 100 years.

May it be over soon.

Tom Henderson, chairman of the Public Advisory Council,
