Abstract: Most of Ohio's water problems are associated with water quality. Of primary concern are the sediments, nutrients and acids in the surface waters from urban, agricultural and mining areas, and toxic and hazardous wastes that threaten the ground and surface waters. The research and technology transfer program consisted of the following activities: The technology transfer program disseminated information about water resources in Ohio to local and state decision-makers. Professional training and development was also provided to 1,000 water resources managers throughout the year. In addition, there were two 2-day facilitator workshops for 100 educators, and 99 six-hour workshops where 1,600 educators participated in water resources classroom activities. These people in turn provided water education to 40,000 Ohio K-12 students in the year. One two-year research project was funded in the regional competition and a synopsis of it will be submitted to the USGS in September. That research project supported one research student in the Department of Geological Sciences at the Ohio State University.
