“In order to sustain the growing population of the planet, we must think differently about how we manage our wastewater, and it’s this innovative thinking that inspires me,” says Jane Madden, CDM Smith’s water reclamation practice leader. Jane has been with the firm since 1984, and has continuously proven her keen eye for planning, design, and construction of several of the most challenging wastewater treatment projects in New England and across the nation.
With over 100 completed projects under her belt, she has gained vast hands-on experience in wastewater planning, engineering, nutrient removal, solids handling, and sustainability.
Jane currently serves as technical advisor on numerous water reclamation projects. Her strength in collaboration allows her to think both practically and strategically, working with clients to understand their needs, develop innovative and cost-effective solutions, and establish long-term working relationships.
“We have moved from simply designing wastewater treatment plants that meet water quality standards to designing water resource recovery facilities that reclaim water for direct potable reuse, reclaim nutrients and biosolids for soil amendments and generate power and fuel,” Jane says. “Many of our clients are evolving towards net-zero facilities in terms of water, energy and waste.”
