We are pleased to announce that The Environmental Business Council of New England (EBC) will award Kyle Hay, EIT, a Project Engineer in Weston & Sampson’s Water Group, with a 2019 EBC Ascending Leader Award.
A Project Engineer in Weston & Sampson’s Water Group, Kyle is focused on projects related to drinking water quality and treatment. With a strong background knowledge in water chemistry, he has assisted clients with issues related to corrosion control, disinfection byproduct formation, and chemical feed system configuration. Kyle established himself as an integral team member on design and construction projects ranging in scale from individual well pump stations to large, high-profile surface water treatment plants. More recently, he has immersed himself in the area of emerging contaminants, specifically per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS), and his contributions to date have been instrumental to Weston & Sampson’s rapid success in this field.
Kyle’s expertise includes the identification of emerging contaminants and the design/implementation of treatment technologies. Encouraging and promoting Weston & Sampson’s corporate growth in the industry, he works closely with the firm’s municipal clients to investigate PFAS compounds and provide targeted services related to PFOA and PFOS; alternative PFAS-related treatment options including emerging technologies; water quality data review; and monitoring plan development. Kyle’s experience includes working with several clients on PFAS-related projects, including efforts at the former Pease Air Force Base and the former Fort Devens Army Base.
Recently, Kyle has taken a leading role in implementing an internal training series to promote knowledge sharing within Weston & Sampson’s Water Group. He has a Master of Science in Civil Engineering with a concentration in Environmental Engineering/Drinking Water Treatment from the University of New Hampshire and a Bachelor of Science in Mechanical Engineering from Grove City College. His efforts over the past five years have contributed significantly to the water industry and, specifically, to the emerging contaminants knowledge base for drinking water utilities and consulting engineers in New England.
The Award recognizes young professionals in the energy and environmental sectors demonstrating exceptional leadership and industry involvement early in their careers. The awardees are to be honored at the EBC Annual Summer Garden Party in Boston on August 8, 2019.
