Randall, who has devoted decades of service to improved water quality throughout the world, was a key member of the Chesapeake Bay Project team that identified and quantified pollution sources; developed, promoted, and negotiated solutions with the stakeholders; and significantly improved the bay's water quality. His work has also led to innovative approaches to nutrient removal in wastewater treatment plant discharges -- improvements which were imperative to meet the water quality goals of the project.
Randall's contributions throughout his career have had a major impact on hundreds of wastewater facilities around the world, allowing them to greatly reduce nutrient releases without incurring major increases in treatment process costs. He has worked tirelessly with environmental engineers and scientists to improve treatment facilities in South Africa, India, China, Canada, Puerto Rico and South Korea. The cost-effective solutions he promoted and implemented bridged the gap between engineers and environmentalists, while satisfying the demands of regulators and those being regulated.
After earning his bachelor's and master's degree from the University of Kentucky in the field of civil/sanitary engineering, Randall completed a doctorate in environmental health engineering from the University of Texas in 1966.
The Joan Hodges Queneau Palladium Medal honors an engineer's outstanding achievement in environmental conservation. The medal underscores the vital importance of mutual understanding between conservationists and engineering professionals.
