NSF Awards UH Engineer Grant To Study Effects Of Lead Phosphate In Water Lines

The National Science Foundation (NSF) recently awarded Yandi Hu, assistant professor of civil and environmental engineering at the UH Cullen College, a three-year, $188,531 grant to explore lead phosphate formations in water distribution lines.

The recent water crisis in Flint, Michigan brought the importance of lead release in water distribution lines into the national spotlight and raised public awareness about the value of such research.
