Dave MacNevin, Environmental Engineer, Joins CDM Smith
TAMPA, Florida – CDM Smith is excited to welcome Dave MacNevin, PhD, PE to the firm’s Water Services Group. Dr. MacNevin is a nationally recognized expert in membrane treatment who brings 14 years of environmental consulting experience with a focus on alternative water supplies, treatment operations, and the blending of multiple water sources. While MacNevin’s focus will be on expanding the firm’s potable reuse and desalination profile in the Southeast, he will also be supporting the firm’s membrane-related research, planning and design efforts throughout the country and internationally.
Over the course of his career, MacNevin has completed over 60 projects, including a groundwater replenishment project for the city of Clearwater, Florida and direct potable reuse demonstrations for Hillsborough County and the city of Daytona Beach, Florida.
“In this era of growing water scarcity, finding alternative water supplies is critical. We now have access to water treatment technologies that were formerly unimaginable. I’m convinced we can apply these new tools to tap into previously unavailable salt water and reclaimed water resources, creating safe, affordable and sustainable water supplies,” he says.
A professional engineer in Florida, Georgia and Texas, MacNevin has served public and private-sector clients in testing, design, and implementation of water and wastewater treatment systems.
“I’m part of a team of experts who are striving for excellence and laser-focused on delivering superior technical solutions for our clients, even if the solution is unconventional. With the backing of an industry-leading R&D program and expansive technical library, our experts have the support and resources that empower us to solve our client’s toughest challenges,” says MacNevin.
CDM Smith is a privately owned engineering and construction firm providing legendary client service and smart solutions in water, environment, transportation, energy and facilities.
