Personal Brief

Improvements in technology have made it possible to generate and store tremendous amounts of data about almost everything, and water is no exception.  However, it’s not always clear how the larger volumes of data are improving our management of water resources and water-related infrastructure.  At the end of the day, clients face the same basic questions that they always have:

  • How much do we need to invest in additional water supply sources or wastewater treatment options?
  • Where in our system do we need to provide additional hydraulic capacity?
  • How much should we be budgeting for repairs and replacement of our aging infrastructure?
  • What changes can we make now to facilitate continued regulatory compliance and financial stability?

These questions can be most effectively answered through a collaborative approach focused on decisions that need to be made, both in day-to-day operations and long-term planning.  My passion is working with clients to document their unique challenges and opportunities, leverage their existing data sets and analytical tools, and develop creative solutions to support sound decision making at all levels of the organization.
