By dipping four sample bottles into the icy waters where the Monongahela and Allegheny Rivers meet to form the Ohio River, a delegation of scientists commemorated the expansion of an award-winning water quality monitoring and reporting program that tracks the health of the river waters that serve the needs of millions of Americans.

The program – Quality Useful Environmental Study Teams (QUEST) – is held at the West Virginia Water Research Institute at West Virginia University. It is funded by Pittsburgh’s Colcom Foundation.
