Student Environmental Education

June 2015: At the request of the USEPA, MP&A educated young students from a Louisiana community about environmental careers.   The students enjoyed a field trip to a contaminated site in south Louisiana where there is active remediation of contaminated groundwater.  Dr. Helen Connelly (MP&A toxicologist) gave a presentation on groundwater sampling techniques and health risk evaluation.  The students learned the working roles of the environmental professionals engaged in groundwater remediation at the site.
