Vol St. students participate in water quality research

Posted: Updated:

GALLATIN, Tenn. (AP) - Students at Volunteer State Community College in Gallatin are studying the water quality of area streams and creeks.

The research is part of a nationwide grant program funded by the National Science Foundation.

Vol State is one of 26 community colleges nationwide to participate in the Community College Undergraduate Research Initiative.

Hundreds of students from nine different classes this fall will be taking samples, charting measurements and compiling the information in a database, which will help environmental engineers determine area water quality.

The classes cover a wide variety of science fields including biology, microbiology, chemistry, environmental science and geology.
