Richard J. Pope Named Vice President
(NEW YORK, NY – January 12, 2015) – Hazen and Sawyer announced today the appointment of Richard J. Pope as Vice President.
Mr. Pope has 36 years of wastewater treatment and air compliance experience and will be responsible for managing Hazen and Sawyer’s corporate-wide odor assessment and control services. He will head a company team of specialists who provide full-service, long-term odor assessment and control planning by conducting field investigations, performing odor dispersion modeling to further define off-site impacts, and assisting in selecting the level of control required. In this role, he will also recommend conceptual system layouts, direct detail designers, provide operations training and systems troubleshooting, meet with and advise communities and citizens’ advisory groups, develop public relations and neighborhood outreach programs, and provide expert testimony.
His background includes developing immediate and long-term odor control and corrosion plans for more than 250 facilities throughout the world. The plans emphasize simple solutions where viable, and innovative and/or sophisticated solutions where necessary, but are always developed in concert with the owner through careful evaluation, planning, and staging. Mr. Pope is a contributing author to two WEF Manuals of Practice (MOP 25: Control of Odors and Emissions and MOP 8: Design of Municipal Wastewater Treatment Plants) and has made more than 100 presentations on air/odor related topics at colleges and local/state/national/international conferences.
Mr. Pope holds a BE in Civil Engineering and a ME in Environmental Engineering, both from Manhattan College. He is a Professional Engineer and a Board Certified Environmental Engineer, and an active member of AAEES, NEWEA, NJWEA, NYWEA, WEF, and WERF.

Our range of services encompasses the planning, design, and construction management of water and wastewater-related projects – from clean water treatment, storage, and distribution to wastewater and stormwater collection, treatment, and reuse.
