Global Practice Leader, Water Treatment

Solving water treatment problems starts with understanding root causes, which are not always obvious. That’s why, as global practice leader for water treatment, David works to avoid solutions that only address the symptoms of deeper issues. With his background in water chemistry—and solid focus on treatment fundamentals—he helps to produce efficient engineering results without wasted effort.

David has 25 years of environmental engineering experience managing many challenging studies and design projects. His background has grown to include drinking water treatment, groundwater remediation, wastewater reuse, industrial water and wastewater treatment, and water resource management.

“It is mission-critical to start each engineering report with an informed, concise summary right at the beginning,” says David, “it’s not a novel—no one needs the suspense of waiting until the end to know the answers.”

Living in Calgary, Alberta, David tries his best to take advantage of his proximity to the Rocky Mountains, where he likes to camp, ski, hike, and climb. The highlight of the year? His annual family backcountry trip where they are completely out of cell-phone range for several days and can finally reconnect with each other.
