Projects & Reports

Mystic River Recreational Flagging and Daily Boating Advisory Project

Oct 31, 2017

Developed statistical models and a dynamic web application for generating daily boating advisories based on whether predicted bacteria levels are expected to exceed state water quality standards.

Groundwater and Water Distribution System Modeling for the Wilmington Cancer Study

Jul 6, 2017

Developed groundwater and water distribution system models to simulate the transport of NDMA and TCE from deep aquifer contamination sources to water supply wells and then across the water distribution system of the town of Wilmington.
