By Bryan Vigue – Regenesis
Regenesis is proud to be a sponsor of the 2012 David Keith Todd Distinguished Lecture Series. This unique and compelling series of presentations was started by the Groundwater Resources Association of California (GRAC) to honor Dr. David Keith Todd, Professor of Civil Engineering at University of California Berkley, for his significant contributions to groundwater science and technology. Once a year, this unique lectureship is awarded to qualified individuals who personify Dr. Todd’s lifelong dedication to groundwater resources. Specially created lectures are offered throughout California at universities, statewide and regional GRA events and GRA’s Annual Conference and Meeting. In 1999, Dr. Todd received the Lifetime Achievement Award from the GRA, well before passing away in 2006. Dr. Todd’s research became the basis for his textbook Groundwater Hydrology, first published in 1959 and now in its 3rd Edition.
