The editorial board of the Journal of the American Water Resources Association (JAWRA) has selected three finalists for the 2017 William R. Boggess Award. The Boggess Award is given to the author or authors of the paper, published in the JAWRA during the preceding year, that best describes, delineates, or analyzes a major problem or aspect of water resources from either a theoretical, applied, or philosophical standpoint. Established in 1973, the Award honors William R. “Randy” Boggess, a member of AWRA, one of the first Directors, and a former President of the Association, who has also made significant contributions to AWRA as an Editor of JAWRA. The finalists are:
