The recent story and photo of Clayton State University Associate Professor of Biology Dr. Jacqueline Jordan’s Environmental Toxicology students visiting the United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) office in Atlanta is currently running as one of the four rotating stories on the banner of the home page of the University System of Georgia (USG) website.
The Clayton State students were invited to visit the EPA in Atlanta, the office being a major superfund site that controls said activities for all the southeastern United States.
“This office sets limits for exposure to air pollution, pesticides, solvents, metals, etc.,” explains Jordan. “They also respond to environmental disasters in all the southeastern states.”
The Clayton State students were able to discuss air and water pollution in Atlanta with several EPA officials, and to meet with the emergency response personnel to understand how they train and response to chemical spills, explosions, oil spills, and the like. Jordan also points out that the trip also gave her students the opportunity to inquire about internships and jobs at the center.
Clayton State would like to thank John Vanchella, director of Strategic Communications in Media & Publications at the USG Board of Regents for posting the story and photo on their website.
