June 14, 2014 marked the first intra-CWQL marriage! Sakinah Haque and Ian Ellickson were married at Backbone State Park - beautiful setting for the ceremony and the reception. Prior to the ceremony, however, we headed down to the beach to discuss E. coli, microcystins, and the general state of water quality in Iowa. (Turns out, swimming wasn't recommended there due to elevated levels of E. coli.)
