Bill McIntyre, the college’s first EAS PhD graduate, and civil engineering professor and chair Kevin Rens have received a patent for a System and Method of Using Differential Elevation-Induced Energy for the Purpose of Storing Water Underground. This patent is the result of McIntyre’s dissertation and is a big deal in the water resources field, especially when dealing with alluvial storage and recovery. This is the first patent for both Rens and McIntyre.

Congratulations to both of you!
