When I first came to Colorado State in 1967 as a graduate student, my emphasis was on hydraulic engineering. Over the years Iíve evolved to my current focus on management issues of water resources, civil infrastructure, and pipeline systems. Iím currently involved with other faculty members on projects relating to clean water, hydrologic and ecological systems, and pipeline management. Colorado State has graduates working in leading water positions around the world, and Iím pleased to remain in touch with many of them. I also try to stay involved with business and professional groups to advance the causes of effective water and infrastructure management.
