Our team is constantly on-the-go. You'll find us on-site, learning about a city's new green initiative, or on a panel alongside our members and contributing information about infrastructure investment. We know that in order to be a thought leader and resource for people who care about quality water, we must be active in the national and global discussions on water. And we're not alone.
Leaders from various backgrounds are working together to meet the water challenges facing communities across the country and around the world, and we are pleased to be working with them. Innovative technology, better management skills and robust investment may help get projects off-and-running, but truly sustainable solutions can't be created without collaboration, vision and hard work.
We celebrate leadership and the success it delivers, and every now and then, we cross paths with individuals working behind-the-scenes who exemplify everything that is excellent about the water industry. That is certainly the case with the leaders recognized below. We hope you will visit this page often to read more stories of leaders we've met along the way and those who continue to inspire us every day.
This is our small way of saying "thank you" for all they do to keep moving water forward.
In his principal role with the Drinking Water and Water Quality division of The Cadmus Group, one of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency's foremost consulting firms in the areas of water and energy efficiency, Tracy Mehan is a real leader in the holistic approach to watershed management.
An expert in the implementation of the Safe Drinking Water Act and Clean Water Act, Tracy has extensive experience in policy development in regards to watershed-based permitting, wetlands regulation and water quality monitoring, as well as knowledge of new approaches to addressing water infrastructure investment shortfalls. We often see Tracy's name in publications and on agendas as a presenter on environmental issues.
Recognized in October 2010 with our Honorary Member award, Terry Gloriod is President of the Metropolitan Water Infrastructure Partnership (MWIP), an organization formed in 2009 when the water and wastewater providers responsible for serving the 1.8 million customers the St. Louis metro-area made a commitment to work together to educate the region on the growing need for water infrastructure replacement. In addition to water and wastewater facility managers, associate members include the St. Louis chapter of the ASCE, WEF, AGC and the Illinois and Missouri sections of the AWWA.
With over 40 years in the water industry, and many of those working as an engineer with American Water, Terry's leadership in St. Louis and with the MWIP is a shining example of how different organizations and water managers working in both sectors can and will mobilize for their shared belief in high-quality water provision.
