“Monitoring, Prevention and Treatment of Agricultural Non-Point Pollution in Drinking Water in Honduras”

The partnership between Zamorano University and Cornell University will provide students with a deeper understanding of the causes of agricultural non-point pollution in drinking water sources in Central America. Students will meet with Honduran farmers in communities that provide drinking water, conduct site visits, and perform water sample analyses to test for the presence of pesticides and other pollutants. Student participants will use the knowledge gained through the program to present prevention and treatment alternatives to farmers and carry out trainings on best management practices and watershed management.
