President George W. Bush to the National Infrastructure Advisory Council. He is a registered professional engineer. Mr. Archuleta earned his B.S. and M.S. degrees in Civil Engineering from New Mexico State University and a Master’s of Management degree from the University of New Mexico.
James Crook is an independent consultant on water and environmental issues. He is an environmental engineer with 40 years of experience in state government and consulting engineering arenas, serving public and private sectors in the United States and abroad. He has authored more than 100 publications and is an internationally recognized expert in water reclamation and reuse. Previously, he spent 15 years directing the California Department of Health Services’ water reuse program and developed California’s first comprehensive water reuse criteria. He was the principal author of the Guidelines for Water Reuse, published by the EPA and the U.S. Agency for International Development. His honors include selection as the American Academy of Environmental Engineers’ 2002 Kappe Lecturer. He served as chair of the Committee on the Evaluation of the Viability of Augmenting Potable Water Supplies with Reclaimed Water. Dr. Crook received a B.S. in civil engineering from the University of Massachusetts at Amherst, and an M.S. and a Ph.D. in environmental engineering from the University of Cincinnati.
Jörg E. Drewes is a Professor of Civil and Environmental Engineering and Director of Research for the NSF Engineering Research Center “Reinventing the Nation’s Urban Water Infrastructure (ReNUWIt).” He also serves as associate director of the Advanced Water Technology Center (AQWATEC) at the Colorado School of Mines. Dr. Drewes also holds an Adjunct Professor appointment at the University of New South Wales, Sydney and a Visiting Professor appointment at the King Abdullah University of Science and Technology, Saudi Arabia. Dr. Drewes has been actively involved in research in the area of water treatment and non-potable and potable water reuse for more than nineteen years. Dr. Drewes’ research interests include water treatment and potable reuse, design and operation of managed aquifer recharge (MAR) system, monitoring strategies for bulk organic carbon and emerging trace organic chemicals in natural and engineered systems, performance modeling and optimized operation of energy-efficient membranes, and beneficial reuse of produced water during natural gas exploration. Dr. Drewes received his B.S., M.S. and Ph.D. in Environmental Engineering from the Technical University of Berlin, Germany.
Denise D. Fort is a member of the faculty at the University of New Mexico’s School of Law. She has 25 years of experience in environmental and natural resources law. She served as chair of the Western Water Policy Review Advisory Commission, a presidential commission that prepared a report on western water policy concerns. In earlier positions, she served as director of New Mexico’s Environmental Improvement Division, as a staff representative to the National Governors Association, as an environmental attorney, and in other capacities concerned with environmental and natural resource matters. She has served on the Water Science and Technology Board and numerous NRC committees, including the Committee on Sustainable Underground Storage of Recoverable Water. She received her B.A. from St. John’s College and her J.D. from the Catholic University of America’s School of Law.
Charles N. Haas is the Betz Chair Professor of Environmental Engineering at Drexel University. His areas of research involve microbial and chemical risk assessment, industrial wastewater treatment, waste recovery, and modeling wastewater disinfection and chemical fate and transport. He was one of the first scientists to examine dose-response datasets for microbial agents spread through environmental means and to implement a quantitative risk framework. Dr. Haas is also the codirector of the Center for Advancing Microbial Risk Assessment, funded by the Department of Homeland Security and EPA. Dr. Haas has been a member of several NRC committees, including a committee to define “how clean is safe” following cleanup from a bioterrorist event and the Committee on the Evaluation of the Viability of Augmenting Potable Water Supplies with Reclaimed Water. He is also a member of the Water Science and Technology Board. Dr. Haas received his B.S. in biology and M.S. in environmental engineering from Illinois Institute of Technology and
