To your health: EPA announces safe drinking water research
Date:9/4/2008

, Bozeman, Mont., $599,996 to create novel, rapid methodologies for detecting pathogenic waterborne microbial contaminants that can be applied both locally and nationally. Information relevant to water quality and associated health risks on the Crow Reservation will be obtained.
  • Georgia Institute of Technology, Atlanta, Ga., $600,000 to develop a rapid and sensitive sensor that can be used in the field to detect, identify and measure cyanotoxins, poisons produced by blue-green algae.
  • University of Missouri, Columbia, Mo., $600,000 to design a new technology using the metal lanthanum to detect low levels of viruses and bacteria in water.
  • Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, Woods Hole, Mass., $508,494 to establish fiber-optic genosensors that can rapidly detect and count multiple species of cyanobacteria in both laboratory and field settings.
