Patrick Malone (MS EVE) awarded National AWWA Scholarship
Award to be presented at AWWA Annual Conference and Exposition in Boston in June 2014
$5,000 Award Sponsored by Hazen and Sawyer
Patrick Malone, who is pursuing his MS in Environmental Engineering at WPI, was awarded a national scholarship through the American Water Works Association. AWWA and its members recognize the importance of investing in students as the future of the water industry. AWWA supports students through more than 14 scholarships, including the Hazen and Sawyer Scholarship ($5,000) which is awarded annually to a student seeking a master's degree in the water science field. Applicants are judged on their potential to provide leadership in applied research and consulting in the drinking water field.
After receiving his B.S. degree from the University of Massachusetts Amherst in 2006, Patrick began practicing as an environmental engineer at Sanborn, Head & Associates, Inc. in Westford, MA where he became a Senior Project Engineer with the group. His primary work was in vapor intrusion investigations, enhanced biodegradation of chlorinated volatile organic contaminant plumes in groundwaters, and hydrogeologic investigations in support of infiltration bed design. In 2013, he began his graduate work at WPI in Environmental Engineering. His research, advised by Professor Jeanine Plummer, involves identifying and mitigating sources of pollution in lake water systems.
Patrick will receive his award at the AWWA annual conference in June 2014, which is being held at the Boston Convention & Exhibition Center in Boston, MA.
