ISG Assists Iowa Cities in Protecting Public Health Through Water/Wastewater Services

Mar 15, 2016


March 15, 2016 (Des Moines) – While water conservation practices are much more prevalent than in past years, many Iowans do not have direct visibility into the constant efforts needed to maintain clean water that is critical in our everyday lives. According to the Iowa Department of Natural Resources, “Qualified and well-trained drinking water and wastewater operators play a vital role in drinking water quality.” With four ISG professionals, in Iowa alone, who hold DNR Certified Operator status’ in drinking water treatment, drinking water distribution, and wastewater treatment, ISG’s Des Moines, Storm Lake, and Algona offices are directly dialed into the water quality of surrounding communities.

ISG civil engineering designer Kelly Evans recently joined the list of professionals who are able to serve Iowa communities with operations of their water and wastewater facilities passing certifications for Grade 2 Water Distribution, Grade 2 Water Treatment, and Grade 2 Wastewater Treatment. As part of the operator certification process, Kelly was tasked with gaining the needed knowledge and experience to properly operate the systems and in turn, protect public health and safety, and the environment while being better equipped to design water/wastewater treatment systems.

Accumulating over 3,600 hours of service annually, ISG’s water/wastewater professionals, provide sludge judging, valve exercising, and routine operations for 32 municipal and industrial clients across the state. Among the four ISG Iowa professionals, they provide more than 55 years of experience in the field and hold a combined eight Grade 2, three Grade 3, and one Grade 4 certifications.ISG’s water/wastewater team, which is supported by other senior professionals including Uma Vempati, PE, PMP, and Board of Directors member for the American Water Works Association (AWWA), is eager and well positioned to serve this vital role in providing innovative and responsive water supply, wastewater collection, and water/wastewater treatment solutions for the Midwest.
