Kevin Vander Tuig, PE, a Senior Project Manager in our Water Resources Group in Cleveland, was appointed to the Water Environment Federation’s (WEF) Collection Systems Committee. The Committee serves as a resource on collection system design, management, operation and maintenance and strives to enhance the quality of human life through environmental stewardship.

Kevin’s 28-year career has been built around planning and designing collection system improvements to address combined sewer overflow (CSO) and sanitary sewer overflow problems throughout the Midwest. For the past three years, he has assisted the Northeast Ohio Regional Sewer District (NEORSD) with their CSO Advanced Facilities Plan and Program Support Services project. He is currently managing NEORSD’s Heights-Hilltop Interceptor Local Sewer System Study to identify and prioritize local collection system improvements that can positively impact regional water quality and public health. A prioritized Capital Improvement Plan is being developed for local communities to implement improvements with District assistance.
