Denver, CO (Vocus/PRWEB) March 09, 2011
The American Water Works Association (AWWA) announced today that Michael Schock is the recipient of the 2011 A.P. Black Award.
Schock, a research chemist for the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (USEPA), has demonstrated outstanding research contributions to water supply at a high scientific level. As an environmental chemist he has contributed highly significant work to drinking water research, with an emphasis on internal corrosion and scaling within distribution systems. His contributions have found their way into national policy, utility practice and the work of other scientists.
Schock will receive his award at AWWA’s Annual Conference and Exposition (ACE11) in Washington, DC, on June 13, during the Opening General Session. He will also be the featured speaker during the Technical Education Council’s plenary session that afternoon.
In addition Schock’s presentation, ACE11 will also offer unique events focused on sections, diversity issues, young professionals, students, public officials, operators, and international attendees as the world’s water community gathers to explore the future of safe water, gain insight into cutting-edge research and best practices, and experience the latest products and services available today.
