Garrett Akie

Garrett is a Hydrologist with the USGS Colorado Water Science Center (COWSC), in Lakewood, CO.

I started with the USGS in 2019 as a Hydrologic Technician. My interests are snow hydrology and surface water quality. My current research focuses on the effects of wildfire on water quality in streams. I also use high-performance computing and physically based modeling to support studies of snow processes and snow water resource availability. Prior to attending graduate school, I developed wastewater desalination technologies and hold a patent for an osmotic separation system and method.
