Annual Award Established in Honor of CEE Faculty Member
Dr. Dave Moreau was honored by the North Carolina Environmental Management Commission and the North Carolina Department of Environment and Natural Resources at a reception July 10, 2012. The Department created the Dr. David H. Moreau Environmental Stewardship Award to be “conferred annually by the Secretary of the N.C. Department of Environment and Natural Resources to honor outstanding contributions and excellence in the protection and conservation of North Carolina’s water, air, and land resources in service to the people of North Carolina.” Dave was the inaugural recipient of that award for his 19 years of service and leadership on the North Carolina Environmental Management Commission. The Environmental Management Commission expressed their appreciation by proclamation acknowledging his leadership on 23 separate actions of the Commission for protection of water quality, groundwater, wetlands, water resource protection and allocation, and protection of air quality.
