Gary Schafran, professor of civil and environmental engineering at Old Dominion University, received the prestigious American Water Works Association's Fuller Award.

The Fuller Award is a national award that recognizes distinguished service in the water supply field. It is given in commemoration George Warren Fuller, an engineer who advised more than 150 cities, commissions and corporations on their water supply and sewerage problems, and whose name is identified with nearly every important sanitary advance in this country in the early 1900s.

A member of the Old Dominion faculty since 1987, Schafran conducts research in the areas of environmental engineering, water quality, aquatic chemistry and physiochemical treatment processes.

He has received numerous awards and honors, including the 1995 Excellence in Environmental Engineering Award, given by the American Academy of Environmental Engineers, the Best Paper Award in the Water Quality Division at the 63rd Annual Meeting of the Virginia Section of the American Water Works Association and Old Dominion's Excellence in Industry Partnering Award.

A prolific writer, Schafran has written nearly 40 academic articles, more than 30 technical reports, and more than 50 published abstracts and paper presentations.
