Scott Wells and Chris Berger, Civil and Environmental Engineering faculty, have received grants totaling $323,000 in the last two weeks from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, U.S. Corps of Engineers, the city of Seattle, and the Columbia River Intertribal Fish Commission. The contracts involve water quality and hydrodynamic modeling studies performed on the Snake River, the Spokane River, the Willamette River basin, and the Cedar Reservoir system (the primary drinking water supply for the city of Seattle). The studies seek to evaluate how to manage large water resources systems and at the same time improve fish habitat and improve the water quality of systems where wastes are discharged.
