Dr. Borch and his group members Dr. Robert Young and PhD student Sean Stokes collaborated with CSU’s engineering department and the University of Cincinnati to write a technology roadmap to promote research focusing on the use of non-traditional water sources for agricultural irrigation through the Department of Energy’s National Alliance for Water Innovation (NAWI). The NAWI project is a large collaboration of national labs, universities, and industry partners from around the country working together to highlight a path forward to reuse wastewater for beneficial uses among various sectors. The Borch group focused on the agricultural sector as both an end-user and as a source of wastewater.
