Environmental Engineering at Chico State

Environmental engineering tackles problems that threaten our health and well-being. It includes topics such as water quality, water supply, distribution, and drinking water treatment; wastewater collection, treatment, and disposal, Disease transmission; water quality parameters; physical, chemical, and biological processes in the treatment of water, wastewater, and biosolids.

Dr. Stewart Oakley is a leading expert in the field of environmental engineering. There is also a club on campus called SEEHD (Sustainable Environmental Engineering for Human Development) that focuses on tackling environmental engineering and health problems such as water and wastewater treatment in developing countries.

Dr. Jackson Webster's expertise includes water quality and contaminant transport. Dr. Pablo Cornejo-Warner's research focuses on the life cycle environmental impacts of centralized and decentralized wastewater and resource recovery management strategies and sustainability frameworks for water treatment systems.
