MIDLAND - Midland College is using a recent grant from the Exxon-Mobil Foundation to establish a water monitoring center.
The company raised more than $22,000 through its 2013 educational matching gift program which represents a 3-to-1 match of donations made by employees.
Midland College is teaming up with the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality to establish a database on water quality in the Pecos River.
The project is being directed by Greg Larson, a faculty member at the college and an experienced field biologist.
The grant will be used to help fund their research.
