Rod Williams is a civil engineer and land surveyor and teaches undergraduate and graduate courses relating to surveying and various aspects of civil and environmental engineering. Current research interests include water resources issues and watershed protection. His graduate research focused on quantification of non-point source pollution in the Illinois River watershed in Arkansas. Current research efforts include the utilization of water treatment residuals to reduce non-point source phosphorus runoff from land applied biosolids, evaluating the effectiveness of septic system additives and innovative wastewater treatment systems. Dr. Williams also consults with regulators, municipalities and engineers in evaluation of the assimilative capacity of receiving streams and performs dye trace studies and related stream surveys to evaluate water quality and the fate of potential pollutants.
