Description

The Penn State Center Pittsburgh is looking for a student with education in Hydrology to assist in monitoring and evaluation benchmarks of water quality impacts in an urban area. The main responsibility would consist of monitoring water runoff at existing Stormwater Mitigation Demonstration projects in both the Four Mile Run and Larimer neighborhoods in Pittsburgh; while evaluating and comparing past monitoring results from those sites. The Intern will also assist in developing monitoring techniques for several sites of a large green infrastructure initiative known as Project 15206. Water sampling and lab work will be needed to ascertain water quality and quantity after the stormwater runoff percolates through pervious concrete and adjacent bio swales/rain garden construction. This testing should reveal actual numbers regarding the mitigation of various pollutants from our rivers when using green infrastructure. A final report comparing current monitoring results to past is required. Requirements: Junior or Senior. This summer work opportunity will be for the period mid-May through mid-August, approximately 30 hours per week.
