NC AWWA – WEA Annual Conference was a Success for McGill
McGill has been attending the North Carolina Section of the American Water Works Association (NC AWWA) and North Carolina Member Association of the Water Environment Federation (NC WEA) conference for over three decades, and that tradition was kept alive as engineers and leaders from the firm attended the annual conference last month.
McGill Project Engineer, Nelson Heringer, PE gave a presentation at the NC AWWA-WEA Annual Conference, and said, “My presentation went really well. The room was almost full and with four other excellent presentations happening at the same time – it shows our topic was able to garner interest. The audience feedback was also good with multiple questions coming at the end, which I always take as a good sign that the presentation was interesting to listen to.”
In addition to his presentation, Nelson said, “Overall, the conference seemed to be a great success. The technical presentations were all excellent and the exhibition hall was well rounded with a lot of engineers, contractors, owners, regulatory agencies, and equipment manufacturers represented.”
At McGill, collaboration is the key to our success and satisfying the wants and needs of our public and private clients throughout the Southeast is at the heart of every project we take on. They are not only our clients, but also our neighbors and friends, and we take great pride in providing them with the highest level of service in the industry.
McGill Senior Project Manager, RJ Mozeley, PE said, “Personally, I enjoyed the opportunity to hang out with clients at our open house on Monday night and catch up with some contacts who we hadn’t seen in a while.”
NC AWWA-WEA CONFERENCE TAKEAWAY
Methods, procedures, environmental focuses, and technology are always evolving, and that rate of change in the engineering field is ever-increasing. This brings about the need for modern, comprehensive solutions, and McGill seizes the opportunity at conferences such as NC AWWA-WEA to synthesize our own innovative practices and ideas with those of other experts in the industry.
NEW OPPORTUNITIES IN THE WATER / WASTEWATER INDUSTRY
There is a surplus of exciting projects happening throughout the water and wastewater industry in North Carolina, and as a leader in that space, McGill makes it a point to seek out opportunities where we can get up-to-date information on new findings and techniques, acquire a fresh perspective, and revivify our passion for the significant work we do.
“We are seeing clearly now that the recent infrastructure bill coming out of D.C. is going to be a once in a lifetime opportunity to invest in water and wastewater systems nationwide. There are still a lot of unknowns about how the programs will be implemented but the sheer volume of cash headed to the water / wastewater market is staggering,” RJ explained.
