Jon Grand, of the Office of International Activities of the USEPA wrote a
letter of thanks to Superintendent of Industrial Waste, Ms. Beverly Head, Supervising Chemist, Mr. Ty Gouda, and their staff for being
instrumental in donation of the used environmental laboratory equipment to
the Kaunas Technological University of Lithuania.
Jon Grand stated, “The University as a whole is now in a better
position to partner with other European institutions to investigate
pollution problems in that part of the world.
We look forward to continued cooperation with your institution as
we endeavor to expand this effort to neighboring countries and bring their
monitoring capacity into the last part of the 20th century as
your laboratories move into the 21st century.”
The Kaunas students and volunteers received invaluable experience
in becoming familiar with the equipment through repairing and learning how
to operate it. The donated
equipment also allows students to receive applied laboratory training that
is in line with their theoretical lectures.
