Black & Veatch Supports UV, Ozone Conference
Black & Veatch on April 8 said it was contributing to the technical program at the IUVA/IOA North American Conference, co-sponsored by the International Ultraviolet Association (IUVA) and the International Ozone Association (IOA) conference and set for May 4-5 in Boston, Mass.
“The associations sponsoring this conference are committed to enhancing the water industry’s understanding and effective use of advanced disinfection technologies,” said Bruce Long, the firm's Global Drinking Water Practice & Technology leader. Long served as a co-author for three ozone case studies on the conference agenda pertaining to the evaluation of ozonation by Melbourne Water Corporation. He was the first Black & Veatch professional elected to chair the Pan-American Group of IOA.
Bob Hulsey, the firm's director of Water Treatment Technology, was the second to chair the Pan-American Group and also served as president of IUVA. Jeff Neemann, the firm's assistant director of Water Treatment Technology, currently chairs the group and serves as treasurer on the IOA International Board. Hulsey served as a co-author of a technical presentation, “Updating Ozone for the Lincoln Water System,” one of two presentations Neemann will deliver at the conference.
Black & Veatch staff will be presenting seven other papers.
