Environmental Projects

Current Projects and Studies

The Environmental Sciences Department regularly works on small or short term water quality, pollution investigations or scientific studies (less than 5 years). When studies are completed, a report may be created, published or put on the SARA web site. Often these projects are funded by tax dollars or grants, but they may also be funded through private sources.
