dc.description.abstractWater is one of Ohio's most important natural resources, and the State has an abundant supply to meet its immediate needs. Most of Ohio's water problems are associated with water quality. Of 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 1984 State Water Research Program was directed at some of these needs. One project investigated the operational parameters of a fluidized bed bioreactor for the treatment of a wastewater to establish the optimal design and operating criteria for the unit. Three of the projects explored the significance of phosphorus to the State's surface water quality: one developed a technique to estimate the amount of dissolved phosphorus being transport by agricultural runoff; a second better defined the role that agricultural herbicides have in inhibiting photosynthesis and the removal of nutrients in streams in the Lake Erie Basin, and a third investigated the relationships that exist between bioavailable and nonbioavailable particulate phosphorus in Lake Erie. Other projects attempted to manipulate the fish population in the Lake by changing the type of habitat within the regions managed wetlands by altering the depth of water; and explored the quantities of materials involved in the transport of sediment and nutrients from the Lake Erie shoreline to the off-shore waters. The Center's technology transfer program assisted in the development of a computer program to estimate the soil loss resulting from surface runoff on agricultural lands.en
