Teresa Platin, P.E., MSCE
Senior Project Manager
Teresa leads the utility management services business practice for HDR’s Northwest region. An engineer with almost 30 years of experience, she manages and performs complex risk assessment and planning studies for public utilities, helping them identify and prioritize their risks, develop mitigation actions, and put plans in place for implementation. She also develops emergency preparedness and recovery strategies to strengthen communities’ resiliency and long-term growth.
The terrorist attacks of 9/11 motivated Teresa to become certified in performing vulnerability assessments for drinking water facilities, and her experience has grown to include natural hazard resiliency assessment and mitigation projects. She most recently served as project manager for a system-wide risk and resiliency project for King County’s Wastewater Treatment Division.
Teresa is a frequent speaker on asset management and resiliency topics at conferences and events. She is active on the Pacific Northwest Clean Water Association’s Utility Management Committee and the Institute of Asset Management’s Northwest Branch. In 2014, she received the Outstanding Civil Engineering Alumni Award from the Ohio State University.
