Water pollution research get grants

ADVERTISEMENT

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has given grants totalling almost $9 million to four research institutions for water research to manage nutrient pollution from excessive nitrogen and phosphorus. Nutrient pollution has impacted waterways for decades, resulting in environmental and health issues, including fish kills and bacterial growth.



The Science to Achieve Results (STAR) grants were awarded to Pennsylvania State University to focus on nutrient flows in the Chesapeake basin; the University of South Florida to support Tampa Bay as it faces problems of aging wastewater collection and treatment systems and rapid population growth; Colorado State University for linking physical, biological, legal, social and economic aspects of nutrient management in the western and eastern United States; and the Water Environment Research Foundation in Alexandria, Va., for research in nutrient reduction.
