She is passionate about science that brings about change. In 1997, her BS in Environmental Biology at Queen’s University led to the ban of a pulp mill effluent used as a road dust suppressant. She continued her education and in 2004, received a Master’s degree from the University of Washington on contaminant bioaccumulation that led the Washington State Department of Health to issue a fish consumption advisory for several fishes in Lake Washington. Her Ph.D. research in 2010 at UW on olfactory neurotoxicity of copper in coho salmon helped pass legislation in Washington and California that phases out copper and other metals in brake pads. Jen’s current work focuses on the ecotoxicology of stormwater runoff and the biological effectiveness of green stormwater infrastructure. Dr. McIntyre is one of the lead scientists on the 6 ppd quinone-Coho salmon project.

2022 Featured Plenary Session
Emerging Contaminants in Stormwater: Challenges and Perspectives
Emerging contaminants including 6PPD-quinone, microplastics, and PFAS pose new challenges to protecting the environment from stormwater pollution. Regulated entities are faced with issues such as evolving regulations, uncertainty in the effectiveness of conventional treatment methods/BMP's, and legal ramifications of non-compliance. Panelists will share their insights on these challenges from various perspectives including regulatory, legal, and technical solutions.
