IWA fellows Jim Field and Shane SnyderChemical and environmental engineering professors Jim Field and Shane Snyder were both selected as 2016 fellows of the International Water Association for their work combating water challenges worldwide.

They were among 39 water professionals chosen by their peers to serve five-year terms as IWA fellows. The association formally recognized all IWA fellows at a reception on Oct. 10 as part of the IWA World Water Congress and Exhibition 2016 in Brisbane, Australia.

“This honor to Jim and Shane is well deserved,” said Anthony Muscat, department chair. “Both are finding applicable solutions to one of most critical issues of our time and leading our environmental engineering program to national and international prominence.”
