In support of our Strategic Growth Project (SGP) initiative, EHS Support is launching a Summer Internship Program this year. We’ve assembled a talented, multi-disciplinary team from science and engineering backgrounds with varying knowledge in hydrogeology, ecology, chemistry, economics, data science/geographic information systems. The 11-week assignment is a regional-scale assessment of a major urban waterway in the U.S. Northeast.
Here are a few key tasks our interns have been working on over the past few weeks:
- Reading reports, listening to presentations, and participating in discussions to conceptualize the nature and extent of chemical constituents in sediments within the waterway, which has a long history of industrial discharges.
- Reviewing and summarizing a large number of historical documents related to potential discharges that may have contributed physical or chemical stressors to the river.
- Creation of a database to house pertinent information about all documents that have been reviewed.
- Writing “Site Summary” reports summarizing relevant information about potential discharges that they have been researching.
- Identifying available analytical data associated with potential discharges, which they will begin sorting through and analyzing in the weeks to come.
