Philip Reidy Presents at the 2011 EWRI World Environmental and Water Resources Congress

ATLANTA, Ga. — Philip C. Reidy, P.E., will present his paper, "Innovation in Combined Sewer Overflow (CSO) Reduction: Implementing Intelligent Distributed Infrastructure" at ASCE's Environmental & Water Resources Institu''s (EWRI) 2011 World Environmental & Water Resources Congress in Palm Springs, Calif., on Tuesday, May 24th. His presentation is part of the Water, Wastewater and Stormwater technical track at the Congress.

In his paper and presentation, Phil outlines design techniques and controls technology necessary to produce the coupled benefits of integrated harvesting and stormwater control systems. He also demonstrates the cost advantages of constructing single integrated systems versus traditional harvesting and stormwater control systems in series. According to Phil, this technique is appropriate for both retrofit and new construction and represents a "win-win" for communities that not only need to mitigate CSOs, but also the impact of growth on water supplies by combining water conservation and stormwater flow mitigation in a single system.

Based in the Brookline, Mass., office, Phil is an industry leader in the design and technology development of innovative rainwater harvesting and stormwater management systems. A frequent presenter on rainwater harvesting and stormwater control techniques, he is co-author of a pending patent for Advanced Harvesting Controller Logic. Phil received his M.S. in Civil Engineering/Geotechnical from Northeastern University in Boston, and his B.S. in Civil Engineering from the University of Massachusetts — Amherst.
