Local Scientists Discuss New Collaborative Study on Contaminants in Ozark Water

Missouri Department of Natural Resources

“One of the fundamental and interesting questions is, ‘What’s in the water that flows around us’?” So says Bob Pavlowsky, a geographer and water specialist at Missouri State University.

When we put things into our drains, we typically forget about it. But, for Dr. Pavlowsky and his collaborator, MSU microbiologist Paul Durham, it’s what happens to the water after it gets downstream that really matters.

These two scientists join STEM Spots host Dr. David Cornelison to talk about their collaborative water resource project and the possible implications of their future results.
