Dr. Dylan Burns, Recipient of a 2017 VT EPSCoR Pilot Award: UVM-Developed Technology Earns Smart 50 Award

Digging a hole in most major cities - for new construction or infrastructure repair – is no minor undertaking.

With a dozen or more separate utilities required to inspect the ground under the dig site for a welter of obstructions like water, sewer and gas pipes, electric lines and electric generators - some so old they don’t appear on city maps – the permitting process can take 18 months or more.

Transformational new technology being developed jointly by the University of Vermont and the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga could reduce the inspection process to an afternoon’s work.

Backswimmers: Upside-Down Aquatics

Sun, 03/04/2018 - 10:01
I had just finished my safety talk to some middle school students when I heard a bloodcurdling scream. In many years handling aquatic insects and other small water creatures, I have never been wounded. Crayfish have once or twice gotten hold of me but never drawn blood. So I was quite surprised to hear through the minor chaos that a student had actually been bitten.
