Technical excellence doesn’t come easily or naturally. It requires intent, effort and persistence.
Finding the future of water
I love research and development because it brings an element of creativity to engineering. When I got to CDM Smith, I started working on potable reuse, and it’s really the way that the field is advancing.
At CDM Smith, we combine technical knowledge with software development knowledge, and leverage extremely fast computational resources to create powerful new tools for our clients.
New tools for tolling
Federal regulations are changing. Water systems with lead service lines, or service lines with unknown materials, should be developing or implementing replacement plans today, regardless of size or current lead levels.
