MWH Global Announces Strategic Alliance with Johns Hopkins University

Broomfield, Colorado (PRWEB) November 04, 2013

MWH, the global wet infrastructure sector leader and provider of strategic consulting, environmental engineering and construction services, announced today a formal research alliance with Johns Hopkins University’s Bloomberg School of Public Health to enhance the company’s global client research capabilities. As part of the alliance, the Research Group at MWH will relocate its laboratory to the Center for Water and Health research facility within the Bloomberg School of Public Health in Baltimore.

The Research Group at MWH maintains a multi-disciplinary staff of scientists, engineers and technicians specializing in fields such as environmental and civil engineering, microbiology, chemistry and environmental sciences. The group focuses on providing innovative, sustainable solutions to global environmental issues and natural resource limitations by conducting desktop-, bench-, pilot- and demonstration-scale investigations needed to support sustainability science. The work performed by the Research Group at MWH focuses on solving client specific issues, conducting overarching research that serves a collaborative group of clients facing similar issues or supporting regulatory development at the federal and state levels.

“Johns Hopkins University is a globally-recognized leader in independent and original research and we’re thrilled to enter this strategic alliance to elevate the study of water and deliver value to our wet infrastructure-focused clients,” said Bruce Howard, president of government and infrastructure at MWH. “This alliance will allow MWH to provide innovative, sustainable solutions to global environmental issues and natural resource limitations while our team members work side-by-side with Johns Hopkins’ staff on a variety of research projects.”

During the multi-year alliance, MWH and Johns Hopkins engineers and scientists will investigate the challenges associated with the world’s megatrends that continue to drive increasingly complex environmental and public health issues. The Johns Hopkins University’s Bloomberg School of Public Health’s Center for Water and Health, directed by Kellogg Schwab, Ph.D., aims to advance the studies of drinking water, water treatment, wastewater and natural water systems for the 21st century in the U.S. and internationally. The school is currently ranked as the number one graduate school in the field of public health by U.S. News and World Report and has a presence in more than 130 countries.

Joe Jacangelo, Ph.D., director of research at MWH, has served as an adjunct faculty member at Johns Hopkins for twelve years. Additional members of the Research Group at MWH will receive appointments with the school as visiting scientists.
