MWH Soft President Inducted Into University of Kentucky College of Engineering Hall of Distinction

Dr. Paul F. Boulos honored

MWH Soft, a provider of wet infrastructure modeling and simulation software and technologies, announced that its president and chief operating officer, Dr. Paul F. Boulos has been selected for induction into the University of Kentucky College of Engineering Hall of Distinction for 2010.

The honor recognizes Boulos's "distinguished service to the profession, outstanding character and commitment to community service," said Dr. Thomas W. Lester, Dean of the College of Engineering.

The Hall of Distinction was established in 1991 to recognize alumni whose distinguished careers have brought honor to the University and the College of Engineering. Although many are nominated annually, only 87 alumni have been named to the hall since its inception. Induction is the most prestigious honor given by the university to its alumni. Boulos will receive the award at a ceremony and dinner on April 23, 2010, at the University of Kentucky campus in Lexington.

Boulos is an expert on water resources engineering and a global authority on drinking water distribution engineering, from hydraulics to water quality principles. He has co-authored nine authoritative books, and more than 100 scientific publications carry his name.

Acclaimed for his practical and scientific expertise and his extensive experience in both academe and the corporate world, Boulos has been a featured speaker at organizations in science, entrepreneurship and philanthropy. A Fellow of the American Society of Civil Engineers, he has been honored by national and international scientific and engineering societies, government and research organizations and NGOs. Among these recognitions are technical awards for excellence in scholarship from the American Society of Civil Engineers, the American Water Works Assn. and the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency.

In 2008, he became the youngest person--and one of only 16 worldwide--to be awarded Honorary Diplomate status (Hon.D.WRE) by the American Academy of Water Resources Engineers.
