Brown and Caldwell raids Stantec for water reuse expertise
09 May 18 by Carl Myers
Brown and Caldwell has poached three senior water reuse professionals from Stantec as it moves to strengthen its water reuse practice in the US.
The firm appointed four water reuse experts to its One Water team in all: Kati Bell, former Stantec global water reuse practice leader, joins as managing director of water strategy; Melanie Homer, who was Stantec water reuse leader, California, is appointed as national water reuse leader; Allegra da Silva departs her role as water reuse practice leader, Rocky Mountain region, Stantec, to become Brown and Caldwell’s regional water reuse leader; and Melissa Meeker, former chief executive of Water Reuse Foundation (WRF), was hired as Rocky Mountain area leader.
“As our clients negotiate water supply shortages in the face of growing demand and climate change, reuse is an essential solution in water supply diversification. Our One Water team is committed to developing integrated water management, reuse, and advanced treatment for resilient and reliable water systems that support the economy, the environment, and our communities,” said Brown and Caldwell chief technology office Cindy Paulson.
The four new hires bring to Brown and Caldwell a rich collection of expertise in water reuse. Bell is renowned for applied research and innovation, advanced technical expertise, and thought leadership, and served as project manager developing the most recent US Environmental Protection Agency Guidelines for Water Reuse. Holmer has been involved in water reuse projects across the US, including the Pure Water San Diego scheme. Da Silva’s specialisms include water reuse, advanced treatment technology, policy development, feasibility studies, and research design and execution; and Meeker brings more than 25 years’ experience of public, private and non-profit sector experience, covering public policy, regulation, and management with a focus on resilient water supplies, ecosystem restoration, and policy development. Meeker was instrumental in facilitating the merger of WRF and the Water Environment and Reuse Foundation.
