INFORMATION, EDUCATION, AND PUBLICITY
The project targets both professionals involved in development of non-point source control strategies and the public at large. Results will be made available to professionals through scientific papers prepared for refereed publication, presentations and meetings and symposia, a brochure and the annual reports. In addition, the project receives considerable exposure through the Stroud Water Research Center’s educational program, which reaches thousands of students and adults annually.
Two theses have been completed as part of this project:
