Assessing Ecotoxicity of Surface Water and Sediment in the Little Scioto River

Leah Morgan

Environmental health and safety (EHS) is a globally interconnected discipline.  The health of benthic species, for example, can ultimately affect human health through bioaccumulation and biomagnification of contaminants up the food chain.  Characterizing the toxicological effects of anthropogenic pollution on ecological receptors helps EHS specialists develop plans for remediating contaminated sites and helps inform industrial policy regulation, providing a cleaner and safer environment for future generations.
