owners, local governments, and state and federal agencies as they address the needs for and impacts of institutional change. Dr. Norris teaches courses in public policy analysis and natural resource and environmental economics. She received a B.S. in Agricultural Economics from the University of Georgia and M.S. and Ph.D., both in Agricultural Economics, from the Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University.

Richard J. Budell is the director of the Florida Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services’ Office of Agricultural Water Policy. In this position he is responsible for the management of statewide programs to ensure that the water quality goals and water quantity needs of Florida’s agricultural industry are achieved. This includes the development and implementation of regional programs to encourage agricultural producers to adopt voluntary, incentive-based management practices designed to address water quality concerns, and the development and implementation of programs to address agriculture’s nonpoint source impacts on water bodies targeted for the establishment of TMDLs under the federal Clean Water Act. Mr. Budell received a B.S. from Boise State University and an M.S. from Florida State University.

Dominic M. Di Toro (NAE) is the Edward C. Davis Professor of Civil and Environmental Engineering in the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering at the University of Delaware. He has specialized in the development and application of mathematical and statistical models to stream, lake, estuarine, and coastal water and sediment quality problems. Recently his work has focused on the development of water and sediment quality criteria for the U.S. Environmental Agency (EPA), sediment flux models for nutrients and metals, and integrated hydrodynamic, sediment transport, and water quality models. He is a member of the National Academy of Engineering and served on the NRC Committee on Sediment Dredging at Superfund Megasites. He received a B.E.E. in electrical engineering from Manhattan College, an M.A. in electrical engineering from Princeton University, and a Ph.D. in civil and geological engineering from Princeton University.

James N. Galloway is associate dean for the sciences and Sidman P. Poole Professor of Environmental Sciences at the University of Virginia. His research interests include the chemistry of natural waters, anthropogenic alterations of biogeochemical cycles, and atmospheric chemistry. Current activities include research on the acidification of streams in Shenandoah National Park, the composition of precipitation in remote regions, air-sea interactions, and the impact of Asia on global biogeochemistry. Dr. Galloway has received numerous honors and awards, including the 2008 Tyler
