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).
for Public Access and Community
Tracking) program is intended to provide public access to clearly-communicated,
time-relevant, useful, and accurate environmental monitoring
data to assist the public in day-to-day decision-making about
their health and the environment.

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.
