  • Missouri American Water has awarded its High School Water Quality Research Award for 2014 to Paula Zaretsky, a senior at Camdenton High School.
    The award was given at the Junior Science Engineering and Humanities Symposium sponsored by Maryville University, St. Louis.
    Zaretsky’s research explored the effect of medicines in aquatic systems on caddisfly larvae—a macroinvertebrate found in Missouri streams. Zaretsky’s teacher, Chris Reeves, was recognized with the Missouri American Water High School Water Quality Teaching Award for his support of her research.
    This is the ninth year that Missouri American Water has offered the award through the Junior Science Engineering and Humanities program.
