Sourav’s ICS Work

Sourav is a valuable ICS colleague and thought leader. He worked at Harvard University’s Zofnass Center for Sustainable Infrastructure with ICS Principal Scott Campbell—exploring alternatives to permanent fallowing precipitated by major agricultural-to-municipal water transfers in the Intermountain West. These efforts led to their independent publication of the Bessemer Ditch Landscape Assessment, which in turn resulted in the ICS project, Navigating the Wake of Municipal Water Sales: Alternatives to Improve Agricultural and Ecological Outcomes on the Bessemer Ditch.
