We all know water is essential to life.

As part of the Water Cluster at the University of Cincinnati we are interested in protecting our water resources by understanding the threats to water quality and making the strides to prevent, mitigate or remediate potential problems.

Current work and collaborations in the water cluster center on looking at ground water quality in collaboration with Reza Soltanian in Geological Sciences at UC and the CV Theis ground water observatory.

We are also pairing with industrial partners (Pipeline h2o) to help protect water through innovation.
