From page 386...
... His areas of research involve microbial and chemical risk assessment, chemical fate and transport, hazardous waste processing and disposal practices, industrial wastewater treatment, and water and wastewater disinfection processes. He is currently conducting research on disinfection processes, water microbiology, and microbial risk assessment.
From page 387...
... He oversees monitoring of drinking water, source water, wastewater, sediment, sludge, and related media for disinfection byproducts, natural organic matter, PCBs, emerging chemicals, VOCs and SOCs, algae, coliform bacteria, and Giardia and Cryptosporidium. Best known for his contributions to taste and odor control of drinking water and odor control at wastewater treatment plants, his current research addresses the issues of watershed monitoring and distribution system quality control.
From page 388...
... Among other things, his research interests have focused on modeling water quality in drinking water distribution systems, including understanding the many factors that can cause the quality of distribution system water to deteriorate such as the chemical and biological quality of source water, the effectiveness and efficiency of treatment processes, the adequacy of the treatment facility and storage facilities, distribution system age and design, the maintenance of the distribution system, and the quality of treated water. He received the 2004 Lifetime Achievement Award from the American Society of Civil Engineers' Environmental & Water Resources Institute.
From page 389...
... She is also an adjunct associate professor in the department of civil and environmental engineering at Utah State University. Her research focuses primarily on treatment of drinking water, including pathogen passage during filtration, UV disinfection, the application of surrogate measures to improve treatment plant performance, Giardia and Cryptosporidium removal via conventional treatment and direct filtration, ozone pilot studies, disinfection byproduct studies, and a

... He is past chair of the National Drinking Water Advisory Council and also served on the California Recycled Water Task Force. He is a past president of the Association of State Drinking Water Administrators and served on a steering committee for EPA's environmental technology verification program related to small water systems.
From page 391...
... Dr. Valentine's current research interests are in the general areas of environmental chemistry and physical and chemical processes in natural and engineered systems, especially water and wastewater treatment process design and modeling; environmental chemistry/reaction kinetics; processes to remove trace contamination from water; and fate and transformation of hazardous chemicals.
