CEH Wallingford's mission is to: advance the science of hydrology through research, investigate through monitoring and modelling natural changes in the hydrological environment and to assess past, present and future effects of man's impact on all phases of the hydrological cycle, secure, expand and provide hydrologically relevant data, and promote the use of CEH's research and data.
Water Quality Studies
The goal of the Duke University Wetland Center is to provide sound scientific knowledge that will lead to sustainable wetland functions and values for the nation and the world. The center works toward this goal by conducting, sponsoring and coordinating research and teaching on critical wetland issues.
Our goal is to enable users to locate and obtain access to Earth science data sets and services relevant to the global change and Earth science research. The GCMD database holds more than 15,000 descriptions of Earth science data sets and services covering all aspects of Earth and environmental sciences.
This is a web-based database composed of a listing of contaminants that are used in various industrial applications. The database may be searched using a parameter or an industrial sector.
As communities are established, as populations increase, our shared responsibility should not only be directed towards monitoring the provincial inter-ministerial and public processes in place on what has and is occurring in our local watersheds, and to our subsurface flows, but also to become visionaries for the future well being of those community residents and to the integrity of our watersheds.
The Great Lakes Directory is one of the most extensive online resources of Great Lakes environmental information. Our online library has over 2,000 Great Lakes articles and our directory has over 1,000 Great Lakes organizations.
This website contains information to help educate the public about the importance of clean, safe drinking water. It also helps those responsible for water quality understand the rules, regulations and standards currently in place.
GREEN helps young people protect the rivers, streams and other vital water resources in their communities. This program merges hands-on, scientific learning with civic action. GREEN resources, including the curriculum Protecting Our Watersheds and water quality monitoring equipment, are available to educators across the country. GREEN training and support for educators is available through offices, affiliates and partners.
CIDA's mandate is to support sustainable development in developing countries in order to reduce poverty and contribute to a more secure, equitable, and prosperous world.
Health Canada is responsible for the assessment of exposure and impact on human health of selected contaminants in tap and groundwater, in order to establish national drinking water quality guidelines, conducting drinking water research supporting technology development/transfer, and assessment of drinking water treatment processes.
