Chief Advisor Potable Water (drinking water).
The purpose of this role is to be the key expert in potable water and bring technical leadership to all projects across their lifecycle.
I have over 30 years' experience in water supply engineering as a consultant, university lecturer and in local government.
Is delivering drinking water to the Wellington Region and planning so this will continue in the future. It is very satisfying how we deliver 24 hours a day, seven days a week a high-quality product.
Is working with low budgets to target great outcomes. This is such a difficult challenge.
I am working on water quality issues across the region and finding solutions. I am also working on our construction programme for the next 3, 10 and 30 years.
My favourite job which was an award-winning job was the implementation of an automation system for the Great Wellington water supply. It was innovative and had a three year pay back to programme and optimise the filling of reservoirs from three water treatment plants for half the regions water supply.
We were carrying out a pipe inspection in the Wainuiomata catchment one day. It was an old pipe that had deteriorated badly and this particular part was above ground. We got very excited when we found some very corroded pipe (half a meter in diameter) and gave it a boot. The nett result was very thorough shower of water and a badly leaking pipe.
