Members from the Georgia Southern University Department’s of Biology, Geology and Geography, and the Phinizy Center for Water Sciences will hold a public information session on the Ogeechee River Monitoring and Research project on Tuesday, Aug. 26 at 6:30 p.m. at the Performing Arts Center.

The project comes after the November 2013 Consent Decree requiring King America Finishing Inc. to fund a Supplemental Environmental Project (SEP) proposed by the University titled “Assessment of Hydrological, Biological and Environmental Components of the Lower Ogeechee River Ecosystem.”

The proposed project consists of two research teams; the Department of Geology and Geography, which will focus on atmospheric and terrestrial processes in the watershed and the Department of Biology in conjunction with the Phinizy Center for Water Sciences who will focus on the in-stream processes of the Ogeechee River.

The research project will be basic research designed to ensure a long-term and holistic approach for research studies conducted on the Ogeechee River.
