Addressing Ohio’s water quality issues

The College of Food, Agricultural and Environmental Sciences (CFAES) has initiated a $1 million project aimed at addressing water quality issues across Ohio. “Field to Faucet” was announced by Bruce McPheron, vice president for agricultural administration and dean for the college, during the opening day of the 2015 Farm Science Review. Researchers will pursue partnerships with other universities and organizations that have the capacity to focus on factors contributing to the contamination of drinking water, including improved water treatment, edge-of-field nutrient management and control of hazardous algal blooms in the Lake Erie basin.
