Montana State University Academic Technology and Outreach and the Montana Water Center will offer a free online course highlighting key issues and topics on water quality. “Water Quality Basics,” which is currently live, has been funded through Montana NSF EPSCoR.

The noncredit course explores water quality issues, including primers on the hydrologic cycle and determinants of water quality. It will address key issues for water quality, such as contaminant degradation and movement in the environment, iron and manganese, hard water, fire in the watershed, animal feeding operations, nutrients, wastewater treatment and emerging contaminants.

“Water Quality Basics” is an update of the Water Quality Expedition program that was released by the Montana Water Center in 2005. The course contains the same information as Water Quality Expedition, but with reviewed and updated content to match current standards and regulations.
