Sulfate in the Freshwater Ecosystem: Sources, Impacts and Mitigation

Our speaker will be Dr. Chanlan Chun, from the UMD Natural Resources Research Institute. She is working on cutting-edge research to find ways to remove sulfate from the discharge of copper-nickel mining and  other sources. The title of her talk is "Sulfate in the Freshwater Ecosystem: Sources, Impacts and Mitigation". This will be an opportunity to learn the latest on possible technology to treat for sulfate pollution to water which is a huge problem causing acid mine drainage, methyl mercury contamination in fish and and damage to wild rice. Don't miss it!

Our monthly presentations are at Lake Superior College, 2101 Trinity Road, Duluth, on the 2nd floor of the Administration and Student Services, building "S." They are the 1st Wednesday of the month, Sep-May, 7pm.
