Grove City College is hosting the Penn-Ohio Border Section of the American Chemical Society (ACS)
meeting this month. Cheryl Soltis-Muth, Supervising Chemist, Analytical Services with the Northeast Ohio Regional Sewer District, will be speaking on "The Chemistry behind Wastewater/Storm Water Analysis."
Cheryl Soltis-Muth supervises the Advanced Instrumentation Section of the laboratory and oversees operation of the following equipment: two Inductively Coupled Argon Plasma Spectrometers (ICP), one Inductively Coupled Argon Plasma Mass Spectrometer (ICP-MS), four Flow Injection Analysis (FIA) units, one Ion Chromatograph (IC), two Mercury Analyzers, two Total Organic Carbon/Total Nitrogen Analyzers (TOC), and a Liquid Chromatography Tandem Mass Spectrometer (LC-MS-MS).
Soltis-Muth also has the pleasure of managing a staff of six talented analysts. During her tenure with NEORSD, she implemented the mercury clean sampling and low-level analysis program and has served as the laboratory project manager for several wet-weather sampling and analytical projects for the District and other local utilities. She has been with the sewer district for 12 years but has worked in environmental laboratories serving in a variety of capacities for the last 25 years.
Soltis-Muth graduated summa cum laude from Baldwin-Wallace University in Berea, Ohio with a B.S. in chemistry. She is a certified State of Ohio Class IV Wastewater Analyst and a Class II Wastewater Operator.
