The event will honor two WSU emeritus professors -- Norman Whittlesey and Walter Butcher -- for their historic contributions in water economics and ongoing scrutiny of costly federal and state irrigation projects proposed for our region. Their academic integrity in service to the public has helped protect rivers, taxpayers, and ratepayers for decades.
