Dr. Greg Baecher Appointed on Committee by The National Academies


The National Research Council of the National Academies has initiated a review of the new "Principles and Guidelines for Water and Related Land Resources Implementation Studies," the U.S. government's overriding policy instrument for evaluating water resources projects, i.e., flood control, navigation, coastal protection, and environmental restoration. Dr. Gregory Baecher has been appointed as a member of the review committee which will comment on various items relating to the study. This project is sponsored by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers. Due to delays, the project’s original initiation date of July, 7, 2008 has been extended to November 30, 2009.
