The Journal of Water Resources Planning and Management is recognizing a CU Boulder faculty member and a master's graduate for their research into the impact of reclaimed water consumption on rivers.

Associate Professor Joseph Kasprzyk and Brendan Purcell (CivEngr MS'19) are sharing a 2022 Best Policy Oriented Paper Award from JWRPM with Ashlynn S. Stillwell and Zachary A. Barkjohn from the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign.

The four co-authored the work “Linking Reclaimed Water Consumption with Quantitative Downstream Flow Impacts," which evaluated the statistical significance of streamflow alteration from the utilization of reclaimed water. The paper was published in the May 2021 issue of JWRPM.
