Scientists have traditionally served as objective information sources and offered science-based solutions for water quality and protection. Through my experiences with the Clean Water Act and Waters of the US (WOTUS) at tribal, state, and federal levels, I argue that scientists could, and should, play a more public role in protecting clean water and aquatic ecosystems.

About the speaker:  

Dr. Mažeika Patricio Sullivan is a Professor, Associate Director, and Chief Diversity Officer in the School of Environment and Natural Resources at The Ohio State University (OSU) and the Director of the Ramsar-designated Shiermeier Olentangy River Wetland Research Park. He received a Bachelor’s degree in Anthropology and Native American Studies from Dartmouth College and earned his Master’s degree in Biology and Ph.D. in Natural Resources from the University of Vermont. Subsequently, he was a Postdoctoral Research Fellow at the University of Idaho before joining the OSU faculty in 2008. Dr. Sullivan’s research focuses on watersheds and aquatic ecosystems, water quality and quantity, and land-water linkages. His work integrates ecology, fluvial geomorphology, and biogeochemistry from headwaters to coasts. He is particularly interested in using science to inform conservation, restoration, and policy. He has authored 67 peer-reviewed journal articles, five book chapters, and 195 presentations and seminars. Dr. Sullivan served as a member of the US Environmental Protection Agency’s (USEPA) Science Advisory Board (SAB) “Connectivity of Streams and Wetlands to Downstream Waters” Panel (2013-2014), has reviewed for over 35 ecological and environmental journals, and currently serves on the Board of Directors for the Society for Freshwater Science. Dr. Sullivan has been recognized as a Distinguished University teacher and a Distinguished College researcher and served as a Fulbright Distinguished Chair of Biodiversity and Sustainable Development (Colombia, 2014-2015). Several sources have funded his research, including the CDC, USFWS, EPA, NSF, USDA, BLM, Ohio Department of Transportation, and Ohio Division of Natural Resources.
