of approximately 100 years of sedimentation into the
reservoir, thereby decreasing the reservoir's overall lifetime
and capacity.
Johanna received her B.A. degree in Geosciences and
Environmental Policy from Williams College, where she
was selected for the David N. Major Award, a departmental
award for the graduating senior who best exemplifies
excellence in the major, which includes consideration
of academic excellence as well as dedication to the
department both inside and outside the classroom. During
her undergraduate thesis research, she reconstructed past
climatic changes by measuring sediment laminations
in a proglacial lake in the High Arctic. As her research
progressed, she became more intrigued in understanding
the geomorphic mechanisms that produced variations
in the source and transport of the sediments that were
recorded in the core. In consulting, she collaborated in a
remediation project which linked mercury concentrations
in lobsters to the upstream sediment contamination at
a manufacturing facility. These experiences motivated
her return to academia to study sediment transport in
fluvial environments.
Johanna currently serves as a graduate teaching
assistant at CSU, where she has also mentored
undergraduate students in the Geosciences. She served as
a teaching assistant and Peer Tutor in the Geosciences at
Williams College.
In her own words, "Support for my graduate research
will not only help me pursue my ultimate goal to learn
about sediment transport to enhance environmental
remediation and water resource problems, but will also
help achieve my personal goal of using research to shape
management policies that impact communities."

AWRA congratulates Amy Plechacek,
2017-2018 recipient of the AWRA
Richard A. Herbert Memorial Scholarship -
Undergraduate Student Award ($2,000)
Amy is majoring in Geosciences at Virginia Polytechnic
Institute and State University (Virginia Tech) with a focus in
geochemistry and a minor in chemistry. Her involvement with
the Virginia Tech Honors Program and Geology Club has
encouraged her development as a leader who is determined
to make a difference in the field of water resources, and her
experience with undergraduate research has solidified plans to
pursue a master's degree in hydrogeology.
Amy is a 2015 recipient of the National Ground Water
Association's Len Assante Award. Last summer she
participated in a Research Experience for Undergraduates
Program at Virginia Tech that was focused on the foodwater-energy nexus, studying the potential sources of water
contamination during the hydraulic fracturing of natural
gas, and she has continued to work on this project. She also
participated in her department's first study abroad program in
Switzerland last fall.
In her own words, "Water availability will become one
of the most important issues as the population continues to
grow. The world needs leaders such as myself to help address
this issue. This scholarship will support me in my last year at
Virginia Tech and strengthen my path toward my career as
a hydrogeologist."
The AWRA Board of Directors and Scholarship
Committee are also pleased to announce additional
scholarships awarded for 2017-2018. The recipients are:
Chelsea Kolb ($650)
PhD Student, Carnegie Mellon University
Sara Goldstein ($650)
M.S. Student, University of Colorado Boulder

AMY PLECHACEK
Virginia Polytechnic Institute
and State University
Blacksburg, Virginia

Savannah Smith ($700)
Undergraduate Student, University of Texas at Austin
These additional scholarships were made possible by the
generous contributions of AWRA members to the Richard A.
Herbert Memorial Educational Fund. ■
