      Environmental Council

      Purpose: To establish a focal point and provide a forum for civil engineers and scientists to participate and exchange ideas on the full range of innovative and emerging environmental engineering topics. The Council’s technical committees produce publications, webinars, and Congress sessions highlighting sustainability and interdisciplinary collaboration. The Council’s awards committee reviews published technical papers and makes recommendations for 10 EWRI and ASCE awards. The committees seek to remain on the cutting edge and disseminate state-of-the-art knowledge on: 1. environmental health and water quality issues, promoting a fundamental understanding of the nature and scope of the issues; 2. environmental permitting nationally and internationally for air, water (groundwater, surface water, wastewater, and storm water), and waste (solid and hazardous); 3. hazardous, toxic and radioactive waste topics, evaluating physical, chemical and biological treatment processes, site remediation engineering, evolving and innovative remedial approaches, and effectiveness of alternate technologies; and 4. zero waste initiatives, a proposed committee to exchange ideas on how to achieve zero waste goals through advances in solid waste management practice and design to promote diversion, composting, and recycling.
