VANCOUVER, Wash. – Helping get a hospital built in Uganda was an important step for Anita Hunter. But it was just the first step.
Frank Loge, a Washington State University assistant professor of civil and environmental engineering, has received a $1.8 million grant from the Environmental Protection Agency to study the health risks associated with drinking groundwater from aquifers. When bacteria in drinking water sickened thousands and killed more than 100 people in the Milwaukee area in 1994, all the current regulations regarding safe drinking water were being followed. These and other incidents like it have led a WSU research group to investigate. For acute illnesses caused by pathogens, government regulations were developed and based on the success of treatment technologies. For instance, researchers found in a lab that … » More …
