Understanding the role of groundwater on coastal water quality requires knowledge of groundwater pollution sources and understanding of the basic processes (hydrological, biogeochemical, and microbial) that affect the movement of pollutants in the groundwater and their release to coastal waters.

Lead is a toxic heavy metal introduced to drinking water through corrosion of lead pipes in water distribution systems. We are investigating the variables that control lead release and developing a geochemical model to predict lead dissolution in distribution systems with different water chemistries.

Aquifer storage, transfer and recovery (ASTR) is a potential cost-effective, disaster-resilient water supply alternative for coastal communities in Bangladesh. To learn more about this project click here.
Green roofs provide significant benefits in urban environments including mitigation of the urban heat island effect, attenuation of stormwater run-off, improved energy budget for buildings, and improved building aesthetics and recreational spaces. To learn more about this project click here.
