  1. Safe Water: Detection of Pollution and the Journal of Environmental Detection Susan Allender-Hagedorn Virginia Tech Department of English and founding editor, Environmental Detection News and The Journal of Environmental Detection Unique Interface ** Medium for publication of out-of-the-laboratory case studies ** Non-technical abstract for each scientific article for use by regulators, the public, and private sector ** Forum for discussion of controversies and advances in technology **Searchable database to track novel cross-over technologies among disciplines ** Readily accessible on-line format ** Notices of upcoming meetings and workshops of interest ** Yearly bibliography of published on-topic articles/books ** Articles refereed by experts in the field ABSTRACT Environmental Detection News is a refereed international newsletter that fills a vital niche between the water quality research and regulatory communities and the public’s interest. The newsletter started as a vehicle to interpret and facilitate a developing technology (microbial source tracking or MST) among the public, scientists, state regulatory agencies, and policy makers. MST is one of the most promising new technologies that identifies the sources of pollution in impaired waters. The constituency served by the newsletter has strongly urged the transformation of the newsletter into a professional peer-reviewed journal, The Journal of Environmental Detection or JED. Publication of JED (inaugural issue July 2007) will focus on case studies of non-point pollution detection methods for both biological and non-biological pollution sources. With the status of a scientific journal, JED plans to move into the bio- and agroterrorism arena where the concerns of all water quality stakeholders intersect. This poster summarizes the content of the first issue and relates how the journal will provide a unique interface between diverse communities with differing agendas united by a common goal—safe and clean water. Volume 1, Issue 1July, 2007 Contents: ** ”Deployment of Source Tracking in Puerto Rico” Peter G. Hartel (Univ. GA), Charles Hagedorn, Annie Hassall, & Susan Allender-Hagedorn (VA Tech) ** “The Impact of Hurricane Katrina on Water Quality on the Gulf Coast”R. D. Ellender (Univ. Southern MS) ** “Source Tracking Comparison Studies: The Need for Further Development”Charles Hagedorn (VA Tech) ** “Tracking Water Pollution in European Waters”Anicet Blanche (Univ. Barcelona, Spain) ** “The Role of Source Tracking in the Great Lakes Water Quality Initiative” Mike Sadowsky (Univ. of MN) ** Upcoming meetings of interest ** Spotlight on current program / technique / researcher / student
