CU Denver Alumna Gets the Lead Out

CU Denver civil engineering master’s alumna Alexis Woodrow (Center) recently participated in a national summit on removing lead pipes from our drinking water supply systems. Woodrow qualified for this important role as the head of Denver Water’s lead pipe replacement program, which is a national model—in fact she was the only utility representative on this White House panel on 1/27/2023. Denver Water has published their own story about this Here.

“Considering how dangerous lead pipes can be for children and communities, it is hard to imagine a more worthwhile effort in the water sector. I am enormously proud to have played a small part in this effort by teaching one of Woodrow’s graduate courses back in Spring 2006!”

– Civil Engineering Professor David Mays P.E., Ph.D.
