What Are People Saying?
“Most challenging thing about working on the Weir River is the public has little appreciation for it so it is not high on the list of things to be concerned about. The river suffers from no and low flows due to over withdrawals in the summertime but it is not something that people see the impacts of or seemingly care about preventing.”
“My favorite memory of the Weir River is paddle boarding at dawn on an incoming tide and seeing an eagle and an osprey on the same trip!”
- Samantha Woods
