ESSIC / CICS-MD Associate Professor Sujay Kaushal recently co-authored an article accepted in Science of the Total Environment titled “Regenerative stormwater conveyance (RSC) for reducing nutrients in urban stormwater runoff depends upon carbon quantity and quality”. Dr. Shuiwang Duan, Department of Geology Assistant Research Scientist and former ESSIC Research Scientist, was lead author on the publication.
The study examined two local regenerative stormwater conveyances (RSCs), sites utilizing a relatively new stormwater management approach, and examined the effects of organic carbon on the quality and nutrient retention of stream water.
In addition to his work at ESSIC, Kaushal is an Associate Professor at the Department of Geology. His current research projects are focused primarily on understanding the interactive effects of land use and climate change on water resources.
