The Center for Watershed Sciences is happy to announce that our Director, Jay Lund, has won the internationally acclaimed Prince Sultan Bin Abdulaziz Prize for Water (PSIPW). On July 26th, 2020, the PSIPW recognized five scientists, researchers, and innovators for their work in addressing global water scarcity, including Jay Lund in the Water Management & Protection category. Congratulations, Dr. Lund!
Lund was acknowledged for his leadership in the development of the CALVIN Project, a large-scale water optimization model that provides solutions to manage water infrastructure throughout California, as well as his optimization modeling of other major water systems in North and Central America. Lund’s models minimize water scarcity and flood risk while lowering operating costs, and have inspired similar water optimization efforts around the world.
