Dr. Ben Stanford Appointed to WateReuse Research Foundation’s Research Advisory Committee
(RALEIGH, NC – July 1, 2013) – The WateReuse Research Foundation’s Board of Directors appointed Dr. Ben Stanford of Hazen and Sawyer to a three-year term on the Foundation’s Research Advisory Committee (RAC) at its May 5 meeting in Phoenix, AZ.
Stanford’s three-year term will begin on July 1, 2013. The RAC consists of 31 top professionals from academia, Federal & state agencies, water agencies, engineering consulting, and industrial firms, and its primary function is to provide technical and scientific guidance and direction to the Foundation’s Board and staff.
Members of the RAC are selected based upon their research experience and areas of expertise. RAC membership is drawn from a broad spectrum of water reclamation, reuse, recycling, and desalination interests, with focuses in one or more of the following five areas: Water Reuse Innovation & Technology, Desalination Innovation & Technology, Public Acceptance & Policy, Water Quality, Health, & Environment, and Business Economics & Industrial Reuse.
“I’m extremely honored by the selection to the RAC,” Stanford said. “I look forward to working further with the Foundation on its various initiatives, including the Direct Potable Reuse (DPR) Initiative to develop viable means to expand the nation’s water supply. Hazen and Sawyer has long supported the efforts of the Foundation, and my appointment reaffirms and expands on that commitment.”
Since our founding in 1951, Hazen and Sawyer has focused on two things: providing safe drinking water and controlling water pollution. Our range of services encompasses the planning, design, and construction management of water and wastewater-related projects – from clean water treatment, storage, and distribution to wastewater and stormwater collection, treatment, and reuse.
