Professor receives renewed grant from City of Springfield
Dr. Robert Pavlowsky, professor of geography, geology and planning at Missouri State University received a renewal grant of $29,233 from the City of Springfield for the Springfield MS4/TMDL Monitoring project.
This research project implements a water quality monitoring program for urban areas in Springfield. The goal of this project is to determine the levels of pollutants in urban runoff to comply with the Clean Water Act.
“The project allows Missouri State to help the community, and it gets students involved in environmental science issues affecting local communities,” said Pavlowsky.
The awarded grant money will be used to pay for supplies as well as staff, undergraduate and graduate student help.
