25-plus staff who supported the water pipe-repair safety research study published July 26, 2017

25-plus staff who supported the water pipe-repair safety research study published July 26, 2017: A variety of Purdue staff were instrumental to the success of a newly released cured-in-place-pipe water pipe repair study. The study focused on the widely used CIPP method for repairing sewer-, storm-water and drinking-water pipes and has prompted worker safety agencies, companies, and municipalities to reexamine the safety of the technology and that of nearby people. Purdue’s rapid response study involved 14 students and faculty from Engineering and Health Sciences and testing in California and Indiana. On behalf of the students and faculty who conducted the study, I want to make the Purdue community aware of how amazing and compassionate the more than 25 staff are who also assisted with this study. College of Engineering: Kris Budreau, Nadya Zyaykina, Sharon Nemeth, Kimberly Petersen, Erin Easterling, Drew Stone, Elizabeth Gray, Bailey Ritchie, Susan Khalifah, Alan Holtman, Bill Schmidt, Deb Burrows, Carmen Turner, Curtis Smith, Brad Caffery, David Rater, Melissa Guinn; Purdue News Service: Emil Venere, Steve Tally, Jim Bush; Purdue Radiological and Environmental Management: Heath Bentley, Eric Butts, Heather Bordeau, Joshua Brown; Physical Facilities: Jacob Denecke; Information Technology at Purdue: Scott Tatlock, Brittany Huff, Akilan Narayanaswamy. Because of these tremendous individuals, this rapid response project could be completed.  Thank you! -- Andrew Whelton (Civil Engineering and Environmental and Ecological Engineering)
