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. One two-year research project was funded in the Regional Competition in 1996, 2 two-year projects were selected in 1997, and 4 two year projects were selected in 1998. The 1996 project by Professor Yu-Ping Chin has been extended until August, 1999. The project is "Sunlight Induced Degradation of Agricultural Pollutants in Wetlands. This research project has supported two research students in the Department of Geological Sciences at the Ohio State University. The first student won a research competition scholarship and another student has been assigned to the project. The 1997 projects awarded in the regional competition are: Economic and Hydrologic Analysis of Integrated Wetland Reservoir and Subirrigated Agricultural Production Systems by Drs. Larry C- Brown and Marvin T. Batte of The Ohio State University, College of Food, Agricultural and Environmental Sciences. This research project provided partial support to ten students. The research project by Drs. Jonathan Levy and Robert H. Findlay of Miami University, Geology Department is: Degradation of Groundwater Quality from Pumping-lnduced Surface-Water Infiltration: Bacterial Contamination. This project provided support to one Masters student in Geology There were 4 projects awarded to Ohio in the 1998 regional competition. These projects started on September 1, 1998 and the report period ended February 28,1999, so they had just started the research activities. They include: Sonochemical Remediation of PCB Contaminated Sediments by Linda Weavers, Civil & Environmental Engineering and Geodetic Science at Ohio State University;; Enhanced Removal of DBP Precursors During Precipitative Softening Through Co-Adsorption Processes, by Harold W. Walker of the Civil & Environmental Engineering and Geodetic Sciences Department at Ohio State University; In-situ Destruction of Solvents by Permanganate Oxidation by Franklin W. Schwartz of the Geology Department at Ohio State University; and Nutrient Cycling in Integrated Cropland/Wetland/Reservoir Management Systems by Larry C. Brown of the Food, Agricultural and Biological Engineering Department at Ohio State University. The technology transfer program disseminated information to local and state decision-makers. Professional training and development was provided to 1,000 water resources managers throughout the year. The information transfer program has supported seminars, conferences, water education for K-12 education, provided support for professional water resource mangers and news articles for water researchers in Ohio. There were two Facilitator Workhops for 70 educators, and 47 six-hour workshops.
