Community Engagement Activities for Safe Drinking Water
Internet-based seminar
Hosted by U.S. EPA

In this seminar sponsored by the Superfund Research Program (SRP), Dr. Laurie Reynolds Rardin, SRP funded researcher from Dartmouth College will present "Face-To-Face Communication Empowers Communities to Spread the Word". This presentation will focus on the Dartmouth Toxic Metals Superfund Research Program Research Translation Core's recently produced "In Small Doses: Arsenic", a 10 minute movie ( which explains how and why owners of private wells in northern New England should check the levels of arsenic in their drinking water. By providing this information in a visually engaging format, the goal was to persuade private well owners to test their wells and put in an arsenic remediation system if warranted. Face-to-face communication and access to copies of the video proved to be one of the best methods of distribution by expanding the delivery network and allowing the movie to be shown by local town government and public health officials, residents, and on local cable channels. Following her presentation, SRP funded researcher from UC-Davis Radomir Schmidt will discuss a MTBE bioremediation project in Glennville, CA. The project was designed to test existing bioreactor technology for potential drinking water production. The UC-Davis researchers tested for a panel of potential waterborne pathogens. They sought to promote a sense of project ownership in local residents through information exchange meetings, demonstrations of the bioremediation process, and by recruiting locals to help monitor the day-to-day running of the bioreactor.
