Sept. 22 2000 - Water Quality Monitoring And Modeling
on the Aberjona/Mystic Watershed
Tufts University Civil and Environmental Engineering

TUFTS UNIVERSITY DEPT. OF CIVIL AND ENVIRONMENTAL ENGINEERING SEMINAR SERIES

A YEAR ("ALMOST") ON THE MYSTIC:
Tufts Water Quality Monitoring And Modeling on the Aberjona/Mystic Watershed
by Prof. Steve Chapra Tufts Civil and Environmental Engineering

Background
The Aberjona/Mystic Watershed is about a mile from Tufts and was the subject of heavy water pollution over the past 150 years. One famous incident was documented in the book and movie "A Civil Action". Since January 1999, I and a group of graduate and undergraduate students have sampled the watershed on a daily basis. In this talk I report on what we've learned over that period. I'll also talk about our future plans and opportunities for both undergraduate and graduate research as well as potential involvement with community efforts to restore the system to a fishable, swimmable state.
