Ashok Gadgil

Public Works magazine has named EETD scientist Ashok Gadgil as one of its 2005 Trendsetters in its November cover story. "The 2005 Trendsetters list, which recognizes the most influential, high impact leaders in the public works community, includes those who have defined policy, brought their community or an issue into the spotlight, or set the standard within the industry." Gadgil was cited for his work to develop inexpensive methods to make drinking water safer in developing countries (UV Waterworks to kill pathogens, and ARUBA, a chemical medium for removing arsenic).
