The College of Engineering Dean's Office and the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering are pleased to host Dr. David Dzombak, Hamerschlag University Professor and Department Head
Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering, Carnegie Mellon University for the College's Winter Distinguished Lecture.

Regions of the United States face varying levels of risk related to water supply and demand. Interbasin transfers have been implemented over time in part to address this water risk. Dzombak will present the results of a recent inventory of existing interbasin transfers in the U.S. and discuss why and when they were built. To provide a framework for the assessment of potential future pressure for interbasin transfers, a county-level U.S. Water Risk Index was developed using criteria including changes in demand, groundwater and surface water use.

Lecture will begin at the Student Community Center at 4 p.m. Reception to follow.
