Anniversary of 100 Years of Federal Water Research in Cincinnati, January 1, 2013 to December 31, 2013
Building a water technology innovation cluster in the Cincinnati, Dayton, northern Kentucky and southeastern Indiana region
EPA Cincinnati’s water technology collaboration and transfer initiative advances research, development and deployment (RD&D) in the Cincinnati, Dayton, northern Kentucky and southeastern Indiana regions to provide cost-effective and timely solutions to issues threatening human health and the environment.
We promote innovation in the water technology sector through RD&D collaboration among internal and external partners in the region, technology transfer and assistance to EPA researchers in protecting intellectual property. The need for sustainable water resource management is identified in the EPA Drinking Water Strategy, Safe Drinking Water Act and Amendments, and Clean Water Act and by our RD&D partners.
