Dr. Nina McClelland Laboratory for Water Chemistry and Environmental Analysis

Safe water is one of the most essential resources for quality of life, but there is growing concern about its continued availability. Both the economic and public health impacts related to water are very significant, and the resolution of issues around safe water and the environment is a crucial component of any sustainable roadmap for the collective future. Water quality worldwide was a life-long passion for Dr. Nina McClelland, and it remains a critical issue for greater Toledo and the global community.
