The Dredging Contractors of America (DCA), at a Congressional Reception on 13 June, 2006, in Washington, D.C., honored Dr. Robert M. (Bob) Engler with the 2006 William R. Murden Award. Eric Haug, president of the DCA and of Manson Construction Company, presented the award.

The award recognized Dr. Engler’s career as an Engineering Research and Development Center (ERDC) Senior Environmental Scientist at the Waterways Experiment Station, conducting and directing research supporting the Corps of Engineers navigation dredging mission. The Murden Award is given to a retired Corps employee who displayed excellence in their career and improvement of navigation dredging.

While employed at ERDC, Dr. Engler conducted and led biogeochemical research, and directed broader sediment and navigation research. He was a frequent witness at Congressional hearings, a State Department delegate for 20 years to environmental treaties, and a member of numerous U.N. advisory boards. He was also a USACE Senior Scientist (Environmental) and the ERDC Technical Director for Civil Works research. During his career, Dr. Engler was often mentored by Mr. Murden, which made this award more memorable than any he had received over the past 30 years.

Dr. Engler is now employed as the Senior Environmental Scientist of Moffatt & Nichol Engineering.
