The US Bureau of Reclamation recently announced that Hannah Safford and Heather Bischel were selected to receive the top prize of $40,000 in the Pathogen Monitoring Stage 1 Challenge.
Fun fact: The prize was announced shortly after Hannah returned from a trip to Burbank to compete on Jeopardy!
The Bureau seeks to optimize the design and operations of advanced water treatment facilities. I sense a future Jeopardy question in the works.
