Students in Cincinnati State's Environmental Engineering Technology (EVT) program participated in the Regional American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE) Competitions held at the Ohio State University from Apr. 6 to 8.
The Environmental Team from Cincinnati State had to develop a flow-through water treatment apparatus that removed nitrates and turbidity while maintaining neutral pH and proper flow.
The team won 2nd place for most creative treatment apparatus, and 3rd place for the environmental technical paper. The team also produced a water that had the best effluent quality (the "cleanest" water).
Cincinnati State's EVT Team included Aimee Poulin (Team Captain), Construction Team members Chase Von Deilen, Steve Middleton, Michael Brown and Brenda Peddycoart, and Support Team members Cecily Simmons, Michael Briggs, Carey McLaughlin, Jeremy Myers and Michael Karmel. Faculty advisor Dr. Ann Gunkel also attended the competition.
The CState EVT team was the only two-year school in the environmental competition, going up against engineering students from Ohio State, University of Cincinnati, University of Pittsburg, University of Kentucky, Western Kentucky University, Carnegie Mellon, Youngstown University, University of Akron and others.
The competition team members appreciate the support provided by College Lab Technican Gail Quinlan during preparation for the competitions, and also thank EVT faculty member Ann Fallon for her on-campus assistance.
