Hazen and Sawyer Engineers Contribute to Updated Edition of Water Treatment Plant Design

(NEW YORK, NY – October 25, 2012) – Hazen and Sawyer announced today that two of its engineers have contributed chapters to the fifth edition of the engineering classic, Water Treatment Plant Design.

Water Treatment Plant Design, fifth edition is a complete design reference for new treatment facilities or existing plant upgrades. Written as the primary reference for project engineers and managers who lead a design team, this book covers the organization and execution of water treatment plant projects from beginning to end.

Hazen and Sawyer engineers co-authored two chapters in this updated volume. Matthew Valade, a Vice President in the firm’s Boston office, applied his 20 years of water treatment plant experience to co-author the chapter on Master Planning and Treatment Process Selection. Valade is a proponent of the use of state-of-the-art technologies including dissolved air flotation and UV disinfection, and he has consulted on projects ranging from pilot studies to full scale design, construction and operation of treatment plants varying in capacity from less than 1mgd to over 2,000mgd.

Michael Broder, a Vice President in the firm’s New York City headquarters, co-authored a different chapter titled Slow Sand and Diatomaceous Earth Filtration. Broder has over 25 years of experience in the design and construction of water supply, treatment, and distribution systems, and in general/heavy construction. With his versatile background, he has served as Project Director, Project Manager, and Technical Advisor on various projects, and has provided constructability reviews and evaluated design drawings and specifications prior to advertising for bids.
