Rachel Turner, Elizabeth Boddicker, and Katie Stowers represented SMU at the 2016 WEAT Student Design Competition at the Texas Water Conference in April. The SMU team presented their design for primary treatment upgrades to the City of Fort Worth's Village Creek Water Reclamation Facility. They competed against other teams from schools including Texas Tech, Texas A&M, and Letourneau University, and ultimately placed first in the competition. With this win at the regional level, the team now advances to the national competition at WEFTEC to be held in New Orleans, LA, in late September.
