Dave MacNevin, PhD, PE, LEED® AP
Advanced water treatment expert Dave MacNevin is inspired by one word: excellence. “I believe that everyone is given certain talents, and it's up to them to make good use of those talents,” he says. “For me, I enjoy solving complex problems by finding unexpected connections, leading to surprisingly effective solutions.”
Dave has well over a decade of experience in the testing, design, and implementation of drinking water and advanced water reuse treatment systems. He is a recognized expert in potable reuse and distribution system water quality with a focus in feasibility studies and design, and he also has a knack for evaluating emerging technologies and utility needs.
His proudest project to date is Palm Beach County's Green Cay Water Purification project. Dave led a team of engineers to demonstrate advanced water reuse treatments, and he says, “The project was technically demanding, but we developed inventive, effective solutions to meet the client's need. This type of advanced reuse project will be critical for securing future water supplies, so my children's generation can continue to enjoy safe, clean and abundant water supplies.”
“After more than 15 years in the water industry, I've come to appreciate what makes CDM Smith different. As a privately-owned firm we can focus on what's best long-term for our clients and employees,” Dave says. “For me, that means the freedom to focus on outstanding client service, helping our customers solve their toughest water quality challenges with technical excellence. I joined CDM Smith because I wanted to be part of a team that can take great ideas from vision to real solutions.”
