Pierre Kwan, P.E., P.Eng.
Water Treatment Technical Director
Pierre is our technical director for water treatment helping utilities with their various water quality challenges from source rivers and lakes all the way to kitchen faucets.
He chose this line of work because of his strong belief that clean, safe and plentiful drinking water is a crucial foundation to life and society. He has seen the tremendous positive differences when a community has good drinking water versus one that does not.
Pierre’s experiences have taken him to Saudi Arabia to design a desalination plant for a brand-new metropolis, yet he’s also worked on small projects like developing a well for a community of 100 in Alaska. With each project, he knows his efforts directly help people have better lives. From per- and polyfluoroalkyl substance to lead and copper corrosion control, Pierre is dedicated to finding the best treatment technology solution.
He is an active member of several national American Water Works Association committees and an author and contributor to several industry books and guidance manuals including the industry standard for corrosion control, Manual M58: Internal Corrosion Control in Water Distribution Systems. Pierre has presented his work at conferences around the world.
