Megan Chase

Clean Water Advocate

Megan has a B.S. in Ecology from the University of Georgia and a M.S. in Environmental Toxicology from Clemson University. During her time with the CleanWateR3 team at Clemson, she developed a strong background in water quality, and worked with farmers throughout South Carolina to address their water quality and availability concerns. Megan has also approached water quality issues with a biogeochemical lens, studying the chemical behavior of contaminants in water and working on filtration methods to prevent contaminants from greenhouse and nursery runoff from entering waterways. She is excited to apply her scientific background to the protection of our valuable water resources in the Upstate.

In her spare time, Megan enjoys exploring the wild and scenic areas of the Southeast, making any kind of art, camping, seeing live music, and whitewater kayaking.
