N.G. Kaul was a highly respected engineer, an immigrant from India who fulfilled the American dream of opportunity realized. He had a distinguished career in public service, first with New York City and then with the New York State DEC, rising to the position of Director of the Division of Water in 1992. That service was capped off, upon his retirement in 2002, by his appointment as Director of the USEPA effort to implement the dredging of PCB-polluted sediments in the Hudson River. He died in February 2004.
The N.G. Kaul Memorial Scholarship Fund will be offering up to $5,000 in scholarships to students pursuing graduate or doctoral degrees in environmental/civil engineering or environmental science concentrating on water quality, who show a commitment to government service.
