2013 Challenge Judges

EPA designed the Campus RainWorks Challenge to encourage an interdisciplinary approach to stormwater management that reduces water quality impacts while achieving multiple community goals. EPA assembled a panel of judges representing a range of expertise, from chemical engineering to landscape architecture to urban hydrology to review entries. Seventeen judges from EPA, the American Society of Landscape Architects (ASLA)Exit and the Water Environment Federation (WEF) Exitgenerously volunteered their time to evaluate the 84 design proposals submitted by student teams. EPA would like to thank the following judges:
