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 and 2 two-year projects were selected in 1997. The 1996 project by Professor Yu-Ping Chin is "Sunlight Induced Degradation of Agricultural Pollutants in Wetlands" is the first project in this report. This research project supported one research student in the Department of Geological Sciences at the Ohio State University. 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 10 students - 5 part-time Undergraduates, 2 Masters, and 3 Ph.D. The research project by Drs. Jonathan Levy and Robert H. Findlay of Miami University, Geology Department, is: Degradation of Groundwater Quality from Pumping-Induced Surface-Water Infiltration: Bacterial Contamination. This project provided support to one Masters student in Geology. 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. The information transfer program has supported seminars, conferences, water education for K-12 education, provided support for professional water resource managers and newsletter for water researchers in Ohio. In addition, there were two 2-day facilitator workshops for 100 educators, and 69 six-hour workshops where 1,220 educators participated in water resources classroom activities. These people in turn provided water education to 30,500 Ohio K-12 students in the year.
