At Black & Veatch, he provided oversight for studies of drinking water treatment and worked with water utilities to optimize their operations. Dr. Logsdon has a wide range of experience in water treatment technology development and application; he has conducted research on water filtration for removal of waterborne intestinal parasite cysts, bacteria, and turbidity and on the modification of water quality for corrosion control in water distribution systems. He is a former WSTB member and served on the NRC Committee on Small Water Supply Systems. Dr. Logsdon received his B.S. and M.S. degrees in civil and sanitary engineering from the University of Missouri at Columbia, and a D.Sc. in environmental engineering from Washington University.
Perry L. McCarty (NAE) is Silas H. Palmer Professor Emeritus in the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering at Stanford University. Dr. McCarty’s research interests include aerobic and anaerobic biological processes for water quality control, advanced wastewater treatment processes, and movement, fate, and control of hazardous chemicals in groundwater. Dr. McCarty is a member of the NAE, and has served on many NAE and NRC panels, committees, boards, and commissions. Dr. McCarty received his B.S. degree from Wayne State University and his M.S. and Sc.D. degrees in sanitary engineering from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology.
