When our engineers aren’t busy in the office designing solutions for our clients, they are out and about giving back to the communities we serve. Most recently, a team consisting of five Donohue employees plus three of their friends and spouses took on the challenge of bicycling up to 62.5 miles to benefit the Sheboygan Area Salvation Army. The members of Team Donohue were Tammy Kuehlmann, TJ Bates, Amanda Kinney, Nic and Amber Marzahl, Eric Lynne, and Chris and Wendy Raisbeck (with Aiden and Elliot). Donohue is proud to support our staff members in events such as this and we look forward to participating for many years to come!
The Central States Water Environment Association’s (CSWEA) Annual Meeting brings together passionate professionals from throughout the wastewater industry to provide a forum for innovation, inspiration, and exchange of ideas. The meeting takes place this week (May 18-20) and Donohue is excited to be involved through presentations, sponsorship, exhibit booth, and other activities. Five Donohue professionals will be presenting on a variety of informative topics:
Jeremy Roschyk, PE joins Donohue & Associates with 15 years of civil engineering experience in water, wastewater, and stormwater infrastructure for large and small entities throughout Indiana. He will serve as the Area Manager based out of the South Bend office.
Donohue & Associates has assisted countless communities in developing nutrient removal plans to meet current and future requirements. When evaluating phosphorus removal techniques, strategies are developed with an “end-in-mind” focus. The specific end goal may be loosely defined but often ties to effluent permit requirements and operational preferences. The demands placed on the overall treatment facility can challenge specific nutrient removal goals, especially phosphorus.
Donohue’s Kendra Sveum, PE recently received recognition for completing her term as President of the Illinois Water Environment Association (IWEA). Under her leadership, IWEA brought forth fresh ideas for the organization such as a new venue for the annual conference and the introduction of “Life is Good Water: Renew for the Future” as this year’s conference slogan.
Donohue’s Craig Heisel, PE, Joseph Pisula, PE, and Kendra Sveum, PE are among the presenters featured at the 36th annual conference and exposition held by the Illinois Water Environment Association (IWEA) on February 23-25 in Champaign, IL. Craig is a process engineer from Donohue’s South Bend, IN office and has two presentations; the first is “How Much Selector Zone Mixing Energy is Enough?” and the second is “Getting “Bang for Your Buck” – Maximizing Wet Weather Full Treatment Capacity.” Joseph is a vice president from Donohue’s Champaign, IL office and his presentation is “Enhanced Sludge Thickening at Decatur.” Kendra is process engineer from Donohue’s Chicago, IL office and her presentation is “How Aeration Basin Configurations Impact Nutrients, Aeration, and Biomass Health.”
From its modest beginnings in downtown Sheboygan, Donohue & Associates is marking its 18th year in providing water, wastewater, transportation, and stormwater engineering solutions to municipal, county, state, and industrial clients. During that time, Donohue has grown from 7 employees to nearly 100 engineers and specialists across five Midwest states.
Donohue’s Nathan Cassity is one of the presenters featured at the upcoming Wastewater Administrators Conference held by the Michigan Water Environment Association on January 22-23. Nathan’s presentation titled “Low Level DO Operations: Impact on Energy, Nutrients, and Ecology” examines two full scale facilities that operate consistently under low DO (dissolved oxygen) conditions (DO setpoints less than 1 mg/L): the Trinity River Authority (TRA) Central Regional Wastewater System (CRWS) Treatment Plant in Texas and the Stevens Point, Wisconsin, Wastewater Treatment Plant.
