McGill Minute – Episode 10
Interconnections: Electrical Engineering from a Water and Wastewater Perspective
In this episode of the McGill Minute, we bring in Electrical Practice Area Lead, Nick Huffman, to explore his role on the McGill team as it relates to water and wastewater projects. Nick has been with McGill for over 14 years. Nick and his team play a critical role in McGill’s water and wastewater treatment projects, by upgrading electrical systems within treatment plants, providing auxiliary power through backup generators, and providing safety and operational guidance for operators. Nick shares his knowledge on SCADA, how to improve efficiency in water and wastewater plants through electrical engineering improvements, and why utilities and local governments need to be aware of updates in software and electrical systems and protect themselves from cyber attacks.
