CEC Corpus Christi‘s Gabriel Ramirez, a Senior Project Manager in our Water Resources practice, recently presented at the Texas Water Utilities Association (TWUA) 2023 Annual School in Corpus Christi, Texas. TWUA Annual School offers various courses in water and wastewater treatment, distribution, management, and other water utility industry topics in Texas and beyond.
Gabriel’s presentation was on nitrification. Nitrification can lead to drinking water quality issues, but it is an important microbiological process necessary in wastewater treatment. On the drinking water side, there are best practices in treatment and distribution that can be utilized to ensure drinking water quality is maintained without nitrification. Water quality monitoring and a Nitrification Action Plan (NAP) are essential for maintaining water quality. Additionally, there are best practices for wastewater treatment that will facilitate the nitrification process. Data trending analysis is also an important task in the management of a water and wastewater system.
CEC had a booth in the exhibit hall throughout the event where over 400 water/wastewater professionals were in attendance. Gabriel has over 20 years of experience as a water/wastewater professional serving in management and executive positions with the City of Corpus Christi and winning multiple awards for his project achievements. He is a member of the American Water Works Association and the Water Environment Association of Texas’ Coastal Bend Section.
