Carol Haskins Named PRWC Executive Director
After serving more than 10 years as Pomperaug River Watershed Coalition’s (PRWC) outreach director, Carol Haskins has been named the organization’s executive director. PRWC is a Woodbury-based, not-for-profit organization that uses science to understand how our human activity impacts the quality and quantity of water both in rivers and in the underground aquifers. That understanding is shared with the community to find tangible ways to ensure plentiful high-quality water in the Pomperaug Watershed communities for future generations.
In her tenure with PRWC, Haskins has implemented, grown and sustained a wide variety of the organization’s activities including its educational programs, stream monitoring efforts and volunteer stewardship opportunities. Her most recent accomplishments include facilitating the adoption of the Pomperaug Watershed Based Plan, creating PRWC’s Youth Conservation Corps, and developing a water conservation curriculum that reached approximately 1,200 third-grade students across Connecticut last year.
Looking ahead, Haskins is committed to furthering local and state protections to water resources by supporting implementation of the Low Flow Operations Plan, serving as a new member of Connecticut’s Water Planning Council Advisory Group, leading implementation of the Pomperaug Watershed Based Plan, expanding local stream monitoring efforts and watershed education programs and continuing to cultivate the next generation of environmental stewards.
