It’s with mixed emotions that we say aloha to WRRC faculty member Dr. Roger Babcock. After 25 years of research and instruction at the University of Hawai‘i WRRC and the Dept. of Civil and Environmental Engineering, he has accepted the position of Director of Dept. of Environmental Services (ENV) for the City and County of Honolulu.
Roger’s knowledge and research in numerous areas such as biological and on-site wastewater treatment, water recycling, effects of sea level rise of wastewater infrastructure, stormwater runoff management with green roofs, and bioremediation will be invaluable in his new position as ENVs’ Director.
We are happy to announce that he is not completely severing ties to our ‘Ohana, he will continue his collaboration with WRRC as an affiliate faculty member.
