Water Institute Director appointed to National Academy Numeric Nutrient Criteria Panel ,

Dr. Wendy Graham has been appointed to serve on the National Academy of Sciences Committee on Review of EPA's Economic Analysis of Final Water Quality Standards for Nutrients for Lakes and Flowing Waters in Florida. The Committee is comprised of 14 national experts in science, engineering, economics and law. The committee's review will focus on key assumptions and methods within EPA’s economic analysis, which may account for discrepancies between EPA’s analysis and the economic analyses of several stakeholder groups. The Committee held its first meeting in Orlando on July 25-26 2011, and will meet three more times before issuing its report in February 2012. For information on the committee see
