Represented the Massachusetts Water Resources Authority (MWRA) on the U.S. $4 billion Boston Harbor Project, which involved over 100 separate design and construction contracts, and during the peak of construction was one of the largest public works projects in the United States. The treatment plant and associated facilities on Deer Island in Boston Harbor provide 61 communities and 2.5 million people with state-of-the-art wastewater treatment with a capacity of over 900 million gallons per day. Construction included new primary and secondary treatment plants, a new headworks, a sludge-to-fertilizer plant, a dedicated power plant, a 5-mile inter-island tunnel and a 9.5 mile effluent outfall tunnel. As a fully integrated member of MWRA’s management team, worked directly with the MWRA’s legal and technical staff on a day-to-day basis to avoid as many problems as possible and to resolve quickly and efficiently those problems that could not be avoided during the construction of a massive tunnel/wastewater project.
