Involvement in Watershed UGA

New to the Watershed as of 2015

Courses incorporating Watershed UGA

I do not teach classes, but potentially could use information gained from Watershed UGA in Extension Program related to Stormwater Management.

Collaboration with other faculty

I would like to request collaboration in the areas of stormwater management and on-site waste treatment.  I am also working on agricultural water use and management if anyone would like to collaborate.
