Brian Van Nortwick, PE
Brian Van Nortwick is a civil and environmental engineer who specializes in the planning, design, permitting, and construction management of water and environmental infrastructure improvement projects. “I’m inspired knowing the work we do to improve water infrastructure results in safer drinking water in the communities we serve,” he says.
Brian is helping tackle some of the biggest issues facing our clients, including lead in drinking water and PFAS treatment. He is also currently involved in the development and implementation of several multi-phase lead service line replacement programs, PFAS treatment process designs, and dissolved air flotation (DAF) treatment process piping design.
Brian’s favorite project to date is the Trenton Water Works Lead Service Line Replacement Program. “Every single lead service line replaced means one more resident or family now has safer drinking water,” he says. “It is a humbling honor to be directly helping improve the quality of life for thousands of people by improving their drinking water.”
“I was drawn to CDM Smith for its strong technical reputation, the opportunity to work on so many incredibly diverse and impactful world-class projects, and the ability to work among the very best and brightest minds in the industry,” Brian says.
