Abstract: Water is one of Ohio's most important natural resources, and the State has an adequate supply to meet its immediate needs. 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 the toxic and hazardous wastes that threaten the ground and surface waters. The focus of the 1989 State Water Research Program was directed at some of these needs. One project explored the design criteria for an innovative two-stage fluidized bed bioreator in which the three major processes of cell immobilization, biodegradation, and biofilm control were combined in a single unit. This innovative, reliable biological wastewater treatment process and design provides an efficient and environmentally safe waste water treatment system. Two projects explored the fate and transport of agricultural chemicals. One studied the potential impacts that interactions and reactions between herbicides and existing humic materials as they move through the soils toward the groundwater table. The other project studied the behavior of Nitrogen-heterocyclic compounds as they breakdown in the soil and theirpersistencein an aquifer. The fourth project studied the Scioto River buried valley aquifer. This research developed a ground water management model for predicting water quality changes associated with ground water abstraction. Training was provided to five students enrolled in three disciplines and three colleges at The Ohio State University.
