Anne Marie Clarke Bio

Anne Marie Clarke graduated from Sweet Briar College in 2003 with a B.S. in Environmental Science. She began working with the District in November of 2003 as the Amherst Watershed Coordinator. She coordinates watershed assessments within the drinking water supply areas for the town and county of Amherst. She uses GPS technology to record pollution impairments while wading in streams and GIS maps to pinpoint impacts to the drinking water supply. She is also responsible for the administration of the watershed protection ordinance, Amherst Tree Buffer Program, internships, monitoring, educational programs and working with landowners. She believes that one of the most important aspects of her job is not only to find pollution sources in the watershed but to re-connect landowners with their natural resources and assist them by finding conservation programs that will make their property more productive as well as protect our drinking water supply at the source.
