He has worked on the process design for dozens of treatment plants, ranging from less than 1 to more than 900 MGD in capacity and has experience with virtually every physiochemical process and most biological processes as well. He has a special interest in emerging water quality problems and reuse. Dr. Trussell is a member of the National Academy of Engineering and has served for more than 10 years on the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA’s) Science Advisory Board. He also served as chair of the Water Science and Technology Board and has been a member of numerous National Research Council (NRC) committees, including the Committee on the Evaluation of the Viability of Augmenting Potable Water Supplies with Reclaimed Water and the Committee on Indicators for Waterborne Pathogens. Dr. Trussell has a B.S., M.S., and Ph.D. in environmental engineering from the University of California, Berkeley.

Henry A. Anderson is chief medical officer and state epidemiologist for occupational and environmental health in the Wisconsin Division of Public Health and adjunct professor of population health at the University of Wisconsin Medical School. Dr. Anderson’s expertise includes public health; preventive, environmental, and occupational medicine; respiratory diseases; epidemiology; human health risk assessment; and risk communication. His research interests include disease surveillance, risk assessment, health hazards of Great Lakes sport-fish consumption, arsenic in drinking water, asbestos disease, and occupational fatalities and injuries. He is certified by the American Board of Preventive Medicine with a subspecialty in occupational and environmental medicine and is a fellow of the American College of Epidemiology. Dr. Anderson is chair of the Board of Scientific Councilors of the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health and serves on the EPA Children’s Health Protection Advisory Committee. He has served on several NRC committees, including the Division on Earth and Life Studies Committee, the Committee on Toxicity Testing and Assessment of Environmental Agents, and the Committee on Enhancing Environmental Health Content in Nursing Practice. Dr. Anderson received his M.D. from the University of Wisconsin Medical School.

Edmund G. Archuleta is the manager of the El Paso Water Utilities Public Service Board, a role he has served in for nearly 20 years. He is responsible for all aspects of water, wastewater, reclaimed water service, and stormwater to the greater El Paso metropolitan area.
