Cristina Piekarz, P.E.

Chemical Engineer

Cristina’s experience includes supporting a variety of industrial and municipal clients in water and wastewater. 

She graduated from the University of Michigan with a degree in chemical engineering. In college, she worked on a number of environmental engineering research projects in water, air quality and renewable energy. Water became her focus after her community experienced firsthand the impacts of unsafe drinking water. 

Cristina enjoys helping clients solve challenging water and wastewater treatment problems, and looks for opportunities to learn about new and innovative approaches that can add value to clients and communities. Her work experience includes water balances, thermal balances, chemistry models, technology evaluations, bench scale and pilot testing, system design, permitting support, process troubleshooting and optimization plans, and facility commissioning assistance and oversight. 

She is actively engaged in local and national conferences, and has recently published and presented work on meeting U.S. Environmental Protection Agency Lead and Copper Rule compliance.
