Fertilizer And Stormwater Runoff Outreach Program In Newcastle, Nh, David Anderson 2010 University of New Hampshire

Fertilizer And Stormwater Runoff Outreach Program In Newcastle, Nh, David Anderson

PREP Publications

The New Hampshire Coastal Protection Partnership (NH Coast) implemented a year long pilot public education and outreach program in the Town of New Castle aimed at reducing nitrogen pollution from lawn fertilizers and promoting rain gardens as a solution to storm water runoff and nonpoint source pollution. A total of 77 landowners representing 138 acres of land pledged to either not use lawn fertilizers or use only low phosphorus, slow release nitrogen brands. The program also resulted in the installation of New Castle’s first demonstration rain garden.

Problem Niekontrolowanego Spalania Odpadów I Pozostałości Roślinnych W Obszarze Wiejskim Na Wybranym Przykładzie, Robert Oleniacz, Barbara Bacik

Robert Oleniacz

This paper presents the results of surveys on the problem of uncontrolled burning of waste in domestic stoves and boilers for central heating and open burning of plant residues in rural areas. The questionnaires were conducted among the inhabitants of one of Polish village (Łąkta Dolna), located in the Malopolska province, in the submontane area. The study comprised 80.2% of all households. As is clear from conducted surveys waste were burned in more than 80% of surveyed houses and more than half of respondents admitted to the open burning of plant residues. The percentage of people burning waste and ...

Wpływ Zakładu Unieszkodliwiania Stałych Odpadów Komunalnych W Warszawie Na Jakość Powietrza, Robert Oleniacz, Jadwiga Antolak

Robert Oleniacz

The paper presents the results of air quality impact assessment carried out for the Municipal Solid Waste Disposal Plant in Warsaw. As part of the plant is working so far the only municipal solid waste incinerator in Poland. Following the evaluation, including data for the year 2008, it was found that it is a minor source of emissions to air and causes a slight air pollution. The highest maximum one-hour and annual average concentrations caused at ground level are many times lower than the respective reference (or permissible) values and background values for analyzed substances in the air. Increasing the ...

Lead Hazard Reduction In Bulloch County - A Rural Community-Based Program, Simone Charles 2010 Georgia Southern University

Lead Hazard Reduction In Bulloch County - A Rural Community-Based Program, Simone Charles

Simone M. Charles

Childhood lead poisoning is a serious health problem for the US and for Georgia. Lead is a neurotoxin with health impacts that include brain, kidney and bone marrow damage, reduced IQ, impaired learning abilities, and behavioral problems. The blood lead level (BLL) (i.e., the level of lead in the blood) which is denoted as elevated and is the State of Georgia's action level for initiating education with families of children presenting with this blood lead level is 10ug/dL. However, adverse effects begin well below this level. This study focused on the children presenting at Bulloch County Head ...

Evaluation Of A Multisite Asthma Program Initiative: Linking Program Activities With Distal Outcomes To Demonstrate Systems Change, Lynn Woodhouse, Russ Toal, Deanna Keene, Laura Gunn, Simone Charles, Cassandra Arroyo, Stuart Tedders, William Livingood, Trang Nguyen

Simone M. Charles

Five unique community interventions to reduce childhood asthma morbidity and to facilitate healthcare and community systems level changes were developed and privately funded in GA. In an effort to document these outcomes and facilitate a multi-site level of understanding, the funder also contracted with our university-based evaluation team. Our team worked with program staff and developed a plan to document both program level evaluation and cross site measures (process, impact and outcome). The funded projects were charged with increasing enrollment of children and the management of their asthma. They used best practice interventions and planned to document that systems changes ...

W.K. Kellogg Foundation New Tools New Vision 2 Project: Utilizing Participatory Evaluation Methods To Inform Best Practices Among Community-Academic Partnerships, Simone Charles, Mondi Mason, Padmini Shankar, Emmanuel Clottey, Raymona Lawrence, Cassandra Arroyo

Simone M. Charles

In 2008, the W.K. Kellogg Foundation funded four African American communities in Georgia as part of a three year project entitled New Tools, New Visions 2. The intent of the project is to build community capacities to: a) improve health and eliminate health disparities, b) enhance and/or create community-academic partnerships between local communities and Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCU), and c) develop community-based participatory research (CBPR) projects to address local conditions that have led to and continue to perpetuate health disparities. The external evaluation, being conducted by the Jiann-Ping Hsu College of Public Health at Georgia Southern ...


Sorption Of Pharmaceuticals On Model Sorbent Systems: Implications For Wastewater Reuse, Simone Charles 2010 Georgia Southern University

Sorption Of Pharmaceuticals On Model Sorbent Systems: Implications For Wastewater Reuse, Simone Charles

Simone M. Charles

One concern with the reuse of wastewater is the presence of pharmaceuticals and other similar compounds in wastewater. Different classes of pharmaceuticals have been reported in over 100 rivers and streams in the US and in drinking water. Development of a system that could effectively and efficiently remove pharmaceuticals and their metabolites from wastewaters would inform environmental risk assessment. Sorption processes play an important role in determining mobility, (bio) availability and, hence, persistence of contaminants in soil. Clay minerals and soil organic matter (SOM) are generally considered to be the two most active soil components in the sorption of aqueous ...
