    “My enthusiasm for the water industry and infrastructure started in school. The more I learned about how our natural and built environments work, the greater my interest was to participate in sustaining and improving those systems. But I’ve learned the most from others who took the time to share and collaborate with me. I am continually driven by listening and learning from others every day, and for the chance to share what I have learned along the way.”

    Matt is our leading expert in all things reservoir related. As our Technical Services Group Reservoir Lead, Matt shares his expertise in all types and styles of water reservoirs, including ground level, standpipes and elevated welded steel, prestressed (AWWA D110) and standard reinforced concrete reservoirs. He is experienced with state-of-the-art technologies for ensuring water circulation in large reservoirs and maintaining distribution system water quality through proper reservoir operation. Matt is also a member of the AWWA Steel Tank Committee.

    “I think being an engineer started for me at an early age. I was constantly building things like tree forts and go carts or taking things apart and rebuilding them with significant modifications. Seeing this curiosity, my dad suggested I go to school to be an engineer.  And I’m glad I did – it gives me an opportunity to be a part of creating and building our critical infrastructure. I get the most satisfaction from developing a creative solution to a problem that is unique and for which we have no examples.”
