Columbia County landfill effects on water quality of Euchee Creek
Augusta, GA – The Columbia County landfill is located within the watershed of Euchee Creek which means that chemical factors associated with the landfill could pose a threat to the neighboring biotic ecosystem.
Augusta State University biology students George Hinnant, Rahul Shingh, and Jonathon Atkins will present a study on Euchee Creek’s water quality at the 8th annual Student Research and Fine Arts Conference. The conference, which will be held on Wednesday, March 14, at ASU, is sponsored by the ASU Chapter of the Honor Society of Phi Kappa Phi.
The conference will begin at 11 a.m. in 170 University Hall with a keynote address by David Boykin, a professor in the Department of Chemistry at Georgia State University. The presentation, part of the panel By Land and By Sea, will begin at 2:30 p.m. in the Science Building.
