Tucson Water Collaboration

Tucson Water Collaboration

The COEP has formed a new partnership with the City of Tucson Water to implement an EPA EMPACT (Environmental Monitoring for Public Access and Community Tracking) grant. The overall goal of the EMPACT Water project is to provide near-real-time data to the Tucson community on pH, conductivity, temperature, hardness, and chlorine levels in the local water supply. The specific COEP objective with the EMPACT water project is to inform the Tucson community about the health effects of the specific constituents being measured in near-real-time and sharing SWEHSC research on other contaminants of interest, including arsenic and TCE (trichloroethylene).

Coming Soon!

The Effects of TCE (Trichloroethylene) on Heart Development.
This will be an interactive exercise where you can analyze real data from research at the Southwest Environmental Health Sciences Center. You will compare microscopic images of normal embryonic heart cells (from chickens) with heart cells that have been exposed to TCE.
