Southern Extension Water Training Workshop: Actions for Working Together. Proceedings of a Regional Conference (Birmingham, Alabama, November 13-15, 1989).
Southern Rural Development Center, Mississippi State, MS.
A training workshop for Southern Extension faculty and staff addressed aspects of water quality and related issues. Conference papers discussed: (1) basic information on hydrology--the science of water transport through the natural environment; (2) sources and impacts of water pollution; (3) the role of public policy in water quality protection; (4) risk assessment and risk management related to toxic and carcinogenic chemicals; (5) an extension training program entitled "Pesticide Usage and Its Potential Impact on Surface and Ground Water Quality"; (6) the conceptual basis for public policy education, and suggested subtopics and formats for extension education on water policy; and (7) extension education programs on water supply and wastewater management. This proceedings contains materials from a solid waste management workshop: activities and lesson plans about litter, recycling, and composting for grades 1-12; a bibliography with 129 citations; and a list of free materials and audio-visual materials available on loan from the Washington Department of Ecology Resources. Also included are summaries of 13 roundtable discussions and concurrent sessions on toxic substances, public policy education, water supply and wastewater management, and solid waste management. (SV)
