WALNUT CREEK, Calif. – Brown and Caldwell, a leading environmental engineering and construction firm, today announced that Vice President Kelly Comstock has been elected to serve on the American Water Works Association (AWWA) National Board as the Georgia Section director.

With over 23 years of experience serving Georgia communities, he has been a part of nearly three dozen water, wastewater, reuse, and infrastructure initiatives in the state, including the Richland Creek Water Supply Program, which will allow a rapidly-growing region in the metro-Atlanta area to harness and manage an independent water supply for the first time.

We are seeing significant advances in water treatment technologies and increasing collaboration among agencies aiming to diversify their water portfolios. Organizations like AWWA are vitally important for facilitating dialogue, research and education around these topics.”
