Warren “Bud” Viessman, professor emeritus of environmental engineering sciences at the University of Florida, Gainesville, and a noted expert in water resources management, died on April 8 in Gainesville. He was 79. Viessman was the former associate dean of the university’s engineering school and president of the Universities Council on Water Resources and the American Water Resources Association. After retiring in 2003, he launched an online master’s degree program in water-resources planning and management that is now a model for online graduate education in the U.S. and abroad, say colleagues. Viessman won highest honors from AWRA and the American Society of Civil Engineers for contributions to public service, research and practice in his fields.
