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 the toxic and hazardous wastes that threaten the ground and surface waters. The focus of the 1995 State Water Research Program was directed at these areas. The research and technology transfer program consisted of the following activities: The technology transfer programs continue to disseminate information about water resources in Ohio to the local and state decision-makers. Professional training and development was also provided to 1,000 water resources managers throughout the year. In addition, there was 1,768 teachers trained to teach water resources activities and they in turn provided training to 44,200 Ohio students. The program also provided technical assistance to help resolve some of the state's major water problems. One project was a fate and transport study of herbicides through a watershed and to a lake which provided most of the drinking water for the community with water quality throughout the watershed was done. Another project studied the effect on invertebrates to various levels of dioxions in the water and sediments. These studies will eventually lead to a better understanding of the risks dioxins have on humans. The third research project studied the design for a bioreactor that would efficient and efectively clean gasoline components from water through bioremediation. Training on these research projects was provided to five students from three colleges in three disciplines at two universities. These include one M. S. Student in Geology and 4 Ph. D. Students in the fields of Biological Sciences - Environmental Toxicology, and in Food, Agriculture and Environmental Sciences.
