Identification of Contaminants in Natural Water Bodies and Wastewater (Monterrey Campus)

Since 2015 professors from ASU, Monterrey Tech and Dublin City University (DCU) have worked in the identification of different contaminants in natural water bodies such as lakes or rivers and wastewater treatment plants through the metropolitan areas of different cities. By this, researchers want to identify behavioral patterns, location of industries that have an effect on water, and wastewater produced by this localities. So far samples have been sent to ASU and DCU for their analyses. So far, Lisa Jones, a researcher from DCU, is conducting a short research stay in Mexico for these purposes.
