How To Support SETLL
Wastewater Treatment Research Endowment
Department of Food, Agricultural & Biological Engineering
Contact Dr. Karen Mancl, Professor 614-292-4505 for more information
The department mission:
Through this growing endowment, the Department will expand and sustain its research and outreach initiatives in wastewater treatment. The endowment funds will be used in three major ways:
To support research in the application of new technologies in wastewater treatment. Current research initiatives are focused on low energy and low management sand bioreactor systems to renovate high strength wastewaters from food processors and restaurants.
To support graduate instruction to train a new generation of scholars to continue research and application of appropriate wastewater treatment technologies for rural areas.
To expand outreach education efforts to enable designers, contractors, regulators and rural property owners to use and maintain appropriate wastewater treatment technologies in rural areas. The current initiative is to operate and enhance the Soil Environment Technology Learning Lab at the Molly Caren Agricultural Center near London, Ohio.
A self-sustaining research and outreach program is the long-range goal for the endowment. An endowment totaling $400,000 will accomplish this goal. The intial goal was to grow the endowment to $25,000 by 2003. We have already exceeded that goal and as of 2005 the fund has grown to over $40,000. Our next goal is to reach $100,000 by 2010.
How you can help:
This research program looks for and extends practical solutions to wastewater treatment problems while working to fulfill the Department mission to best serve society and its environment. With a contribution to the endowment, you can lend support to finding affordable solutions to long-standing problems.
Support Training Program
Donating Onsite Wastewater Treatment Equipment

Long-term care fund
Looking ahead we must have access to a fund for long-term care of the donated items and the training site. For each donated item, a $250 endowment contribution will yield the interest to provide this support. We can only accept items if we have the resources to care for them and can maintain a viable teaching facility.
Number of items donated X at least $250 per item = _____ Endowment contribution
Each item will be marked with a permanent tag citing the donor.
