Abstract:

A civil engineer serving in the U.S. Army Reserve on deployment in Bosnia-Herzegovina gives a first-hand account of construction in a war-torn country. As a member of the Environmental Sanitation Team, Leverington traveled to many towns in Bosnia to assess water, wastewater, and solid waste systems. The author also inspected structural damage to buildings, assisted in the repairs of a major water line serving Sarajevo, and designed a primary clarifier and constructed wetland treatment system.
