Cody Luebbering is a project scientist with more than 13 years of experience in water quality monitoring and sampling, sediment sampling, aquatic biological monitoring, environmental assessments, and natural resource management in support of water quality modeling/decision making, permitting requirements, environmental and remedial investigations, and research in biology and natural resource management.

The Missouri Water Environment is a nonprofit organization that works to preserve and enhance water quality and water resources in the state. The Association advances knowledge, increases public understanding, and promotes sound policy. Members represent water environment professionals from both public and private sectors. The Missouri Section of the American Water Works Association (AWWA) promotes public health and welfare by assuring drinking water of unquestionable quality and sufficient quantity. The Section works to advance technology, science, and policy to actively steward water resources. This year's meeting is the 16th joint conference held by the two organizations.


The Missouri American Water Company Central Water Treatment Plant supplies an average of 99.5 million gallons per day of potable water to customers in St. Louis and St. Charles County, Missouri. The Plant withdraws surface water from the Missouri River and returns treatment residuals to the river in accordance with the National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System permit. During periods of low flow, the return of treatment results in discoloration in the Missouri River. Geosyntec and CMT worked with Missouri American Water Company to optimally relocate the discharge of treatment residuals that will diminish the discoloration in the Missouri River. Project components included receiving stream and effluent hydrological modeling, construction and operation and maintenance considerations, flooding and erosion protection, and permitting of the construction project with local, state, and federal agencies.
