As the manager of our power-water practice, Colleen Layman specialises in water and wastewater treatment and steam/water cycle chemistry. Her understanding of power plant processes and optimising water systems for more streamlined operations has helped clients meet strict regulatory requirements and discharge limits.

A former president of the Society of Women Engineers, Colleen is deeply committed to advancing the industry and mentoring junior engineers. She was honoured to follow in the footsteps of her mentors when she was awarded the International Water Conference Annual Merit Award in 2016.
