eDNA Tests Swimmability in 90 Minutes or Less

In most places around the country where freshwater lakes and beaches offer recreational opportunities, health officials monitor the water for elevated bacterial counts—usually about once a week in populated areas, less often in more remote locations. However, the current state-of-the-art testing leaves about 24 to 30 hours of lag time between when water is tested for bacteria and when results come back. During that time, if the water seems unsafe, officials usually limit access to it. This summer, researchers from Cornell University were testing a new approach using environmental DNA (eDNA) with the help of Biomeme Inc. , a biotechnology device company.

ROVs Sparking Compassion and Curiosity at the Shedd Aquarium

This summer, the team from the Shedd Aquarium in Chicago began pilot programs designed to reach local communities in a new way. Specifically, they ran excursions on both Lake Michigan and the Chicago River using ROVs equipped with underwater cameras and other tools to introduce more land-dwellers to what lies beneath the water. Shedd Aquarium Learning Programs Manager Sadie Norwick and Communications and Public Relations Coordinator Kayley Ciocci spoke to EM about the Shedd's innovative ROV programming for the public. Inspiring conservation with technology Although the pilot programs using the ROVs were new in 2018, the Shedd team is no stranger to using ROVs to educate the public.

TMACOG Program Empowers Teachers to Bring Water Quality to Classrooms

This summer, teachers across northwest Ohio took the time to learn about water quality in Waterville at Farnsworth Metropark. The teachers were training in the Maumee River for the Student Watershed Watch (SWW) program , run by TMACOG. “TMACOG is the Toledo Metropolitan Area Council of Governments, Sara Guiher, a water quality planner and SWW coordinator for TMACOG, explains to EM. “We're a regional planning organization and we work with local governments on issues related to stormwater, wastewater, drinking water, and watersheds. This program started in 1989, and it’s one of our longest running programs.” The program was designed to foster stewardship through the sampling process.
