Kansas State University professors transformed a plot of land from a problem to a classroom, teaching students on the fly to remediate nutrient pollution.
Saugata Datta, an associate professor of geology, and Nathan Nelson, an associate professor of agronomy, taught students to evaluate, sample and remediate land using Kansas Department of Health and Environment protocols.
It started when Chris Steincamp, an environmental lawyer and KSU alumnus, asked Datta if his geology students could restore a tract of land in Sylvan Grove Kan.
Datta jumped at the opportunity to give his students hands-on experience in a process usually reserved for regulators and consultants.

A few years after Ohio became a state in 1803, George Harner arrived in Greene County with a land deed signed by then-President Thomas Jefferson and Secretary of State James Madison. The homestead was largely old forest and wetlands and also included a fen-fed stream—the Beaver Creek.
As was the case with much of the Ohio Territory, the forests eventually gave way to land clearing and grain farming. Harner’s descendants, including his son John and John’s wife, Sarah Koogler, continued to work the rich soil for many years to follow.
Much of the original property and surrounding land has fallen prey to urban sprawl.Read More
Each fall in Puget Sound, coho salmon leave the salt water and swim up freshwater streams. They head upstream to spawn: lay their eggs and die.
Death is always the end of this journey for coho salmon, but in streams now running through urban areas, stormwater runoff kills them before they can spawn.
This phenomenon, called Urban Runoff Mortality Syndrome, can kill up to 70-90% of coho salmon in an affected area.
“‘Woah’ is a pretty common response,” said Kathy Peter, a research scientist formerly at University of Washington Tacoma and the Center for Urban Waters.
This phenomenon adds pressure to the Puget Sound population, already considered a species of concern by the United States Fish and Wildlife Service under the Endangered Species Act.Read More
