Prof. Drewes research and scholarly activities have been in four areas for which he is internationally and nationally recognized and which are closely related based on the common thread of drinking water augmentation with water of impaired quality: (1) design and operation of managed aquifer recharge (MAR) systems including riverbank filtration and soil-aquifer treatment, (2) monitoring strategies for bulk organic carbon and emerging trace organic chemicals in natural and engineered systems, (3) performance modeling and optimized operation of energy-efficient high-pressure membranes including nanofiltration and low-pressure reverse osmosis, and (4) beneficial use of co-produced water.
