Professor Daene McKinney was recently selected to receive the 2018 Julian Hinds Award from Environmental & Water Resources Institute (EWRI) of the American Society of Civil Engineering (ASCE).

He is recognized for “significant and lasting contributions in groundwater systems modeling, sustainable management of water resources, and transboundary water issues; outstanding service to the profession; and exemplary application of research to national and international water resources problems.”

The award selection committee particularly noted McKinney’s leadership to the profession, especially in promoting the role of ASCE/EWRI in the World Water Council and Forum and helping to solve some of the world’s toughest water-related problems.

His research focus is sustainable management of water resources, especially in the problems of water security in high mountain glaciated basins, and the integration of engineering, economic, environmental and political considerations in transboundary basins.

McKinney will be recognized at the 2018 EWRI World Environmental and Water Resources Congress in June 2018.
