President, George W. Annandale, Inc.
Dr. George Annandale is a consulting engineer with more than 40 years’ experience specializing in sustainable development of water resource infrastructure, with interests in the impacts of climate change and reservoir sedimentation on the reliability of water supply and how to mitigate these effects. He has published numerous peer-reviewed papers and is author and co-author of five books on sustainable development, sedimentation and scour. He was named by International Water Power and Dam Construction as one of 20 engineers who made a significant global contribution to dam engineering at commencement of the 21st century.

He is known for his expertise in reservoir sedimentation management, having authored one of the first books on this topic, having co-developed the Life Cycle Management Concept for the World Bank, and
having worked on numerous reservoir sedimentation management projects in the United States of America and internationally. He has authored and co-authored four books on reservoir sedimentation management and sustainable development. 
The book entitled “Reservoir Sedimentation” deals with technical aspects of sediment deposition, while the books “Quenching the Thirst”, “Reservoir Conservation: The RESCON Approach” and “Extending the Lives of Reservoirs” focus on reservoir sedimentation management and sustainable development of water resource infrastructure.
Dr. Annandale is known for the development of the Erodibility Index Method that can be used to determine the erodibility of any earth material, including rock.  The method has been accepted by the engineering profession, is used nationally and internationally for design and safety assessment of infrastructure and is included in federal and state manuals and guidelines.  He authored the book "Scour Technology", published by McGraw-Hill in 2006, which has become a standard reference in this field of specialization.
