2017 Guinean Students Internship

Mariama Barry is pursuing her Bachelor of Science in Environmental Earth Systems Science at the City College of the City University of University of New York. Mariama interned with the New York City Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) in the summer of 2017. Her internship project focused on ensuring quality drinking water, adequate storm water management, and regulating systems that negatively influence air quality in New York City. The project involved identifying and assessing un-permitted facilities that are possible sources of contamination to the Municipal Separate Storm Sewer System. To do this, Mariama and her project partner used web based and aerial image analysis to screen over 1,500 industrial, residential, and commercial properties to determine which needed to be included in the DEP’s environmental inspection program. Mariama will continue interning for the New York City Department of Environmental Protection for the upcoming fall 2017 semester.
