On Sat­urday, civil and envi­ron­mental engi­neering pro­fessor Ferdi Hell­weger par­tic­i­pated in the first com­mu­nity swim of Boston’s Charles River in more than half a century.

Ferdi Hell­weger, an asso­ciate pro­fessor of envi­ron­mental engi­neering, was awarded the Envi­ron­mental Merit Award by the EPA in recog­ni­tion of his work to make the Charles River swim­mable once again.
