Our Winter 2013 issue concentrates on EES research into contaminants in fresh (drinking) water and coastal salt water. Professor Ali Boehm's team is exploring the transfer of pathogens to coastal waters by creeks and streams. Jenna Davis and her team are deeply involved in finding solutions to the problems of contaminated drinking water and poor sanitation in developing countries. The photos on this page will give you a glimpse of some of the work being done. For full details, download a PDF copy of the Newsletter from the column on the left.
