College Dives Deep Into Issues of Water

July 15, 2014

Continuum, the news publication from the College of Food, Agricultural and Environmental Sciences, features an article highlighting the college's focus on water in its most recent edition. Associate Professor in the School of Environment and Natural Resources Mazeika Sullivan is featured prominently for his work with the Wilma H. Schiermeier Olentangy River Wetland Research Park, as well as assistant professors Kris Jaeger and Suzanne Gray.  The Ohio Watershed Network is also featured as a program targeting water quality.

The article quotes Sullivan as saying, "the growing global population, public health and access to drinking water, irrigation for food production, preserving biodiversity, climate change dynamics--they all come back to water". The college's focus on water from multiple perspectives means that "the college has the collective expertise needed to be answering questions that are important to science and society in very impactful ways."
