Kidd Waddell

Former USGS Hydrologist
Salt Lake City, UT
Kidd Waddell was raised in the small town of Roby, Texas where drinking water was scarce and had to be delivered by truck from reservoirs 20-50 miles distant. Consequently, after graduating with BS from Texas Western (now UTEP) in 1962, embarked on a 42 year career with the USGS primarily devoted to water resources. During this career he worked on numerous studies of ground and surface water resources in Nebraska, Texas, and Utah. In 1970, with the opportunity to study the effects of the Southern Pacific Transportation Co causeway on the water and salt balance, he studied fluid dynamics as part of MS in Civil Engineering at the University of Utah. Several additional studies of the Great Salt Lake occurred through out his USGS career resulting in several computer models of the water and salt balance. After retirement from the USGS he had the privilege of assisting the Union Pacific Railroad with designing a new bridge for the Great Salt Lake causeway and Friends of Great Salt Lake with review of a proposed project on Great Salt Lake.
