2015 Gordon Maskew Fair Award Recipient

Dr. Richard G. Luthy, P.E., BCEE

Richard G. Luthy is the Silas H. Palmer Professor of Civil and Environmental Engineering and Senior Fellow in the Woods Institute for the Environment at Stanford University. He is the Director of the NSF Engineering Research Center for Re-inventing the Nation's Urban Water Infrastructure (ReNUWIt), a four-university consortium that seeks more sustainable solutions to urban water challenges in the arid west.

His area of teaching and research is environmental engineering and water quality with applications to water reuse, stormwater use, and systems-level analysis of our urban water challenges. His research addresses management of persistent organic contaminants and contaminants of emerging concern in natural systems that are engineered to improve water quality and protect the environment and human health.

He is a past chair of the National Research Council's Water Science and Technology Board and is presently the chair of the NRC's study on the beneficial use of graywater and stormwater. He is a member of the National Academy of Engineering, a member of the Academy of Distinguished Alumni-Department of Civil & Environmental Engineering, UC Berkeley, and a Fellow of the Water Environment Federation.
