McGill is thrilled to be attending the upcoming North Carolina Section of the American Water Works Association (NC AWWA) and North Carolina Member Association of the Water Environment Federation (NC WEA) 101st Annual Conference next week from November 14th-17th at the Benton Convention Center in Winston Salem.

Principal and McGill Vice President Keith Webb said that McGill has been attending this conference for at least 31 years. “McGill actually handled all of the registration for the event prior to it growing in popularity and number of attendees, when the event was held in Asheville at the Grove Park Inn, around 1990. The first year I attended the conference was in 1985 when I worked with the City of Asheville, and I attended as a McGill staff member in 1987.”

This conference is a great opportunity for our team to connect further with clients, manufacturers, and other water professionals. The engineering industry is constantly changing and here at McGill, we make learning and adapting to those changes a top priority. The NC AWWA-WEA Annual Conference represents a great opportunity to share our expertise, as well as learn from the successes of others in the industry.


McGill’s staff is comprised of many accomplished engineers, and we are known for our expertise and decades of comprehensive experience in providing water / wastewater engineering services. One of the reasons we have great success in this space is because we are dedicated to innovation, adaptability, and staying up to date on best practices. One of those best practices is our focus on creating a balance between nature and the built environment. To do this, McGill puts a great deal of effort into creating design solutions that are sensitive to ecosystems yet responsive to user needs.

McGill Project Engineer Nelson Heringer will be giving a presentation at the NC AWWA-WEA Annual Conference on Monday, November 15th at 10:40 am. “My presentation will focus on results from the pilot study that was conducted at the Town of Waynesville’s Wastewater Treatment Plant over a five-month period earlier this year. The pilot study was a joint effort between the Town, McGill, and Veolia Water Technologies to demonstrate the effectiveness of a primary filtration system to replace the Town’s existing primary clarifiers. Primary filtration is an emerging technology, and we were very excited to share the results of this pilot study with the conference.”

The NC AWWA-WEA Annual Conference and conferences like it, advance the body of knowledge of the industry as a whole and being a part of this advancement is crucial for McGill in our mission to provide top-tier, quality services.
