Tom Richardson, PE

Senior Technical Leader
Water Recycling

Tom has been at the forefront of water recycling (both non-potable and indirect potable) applications since the mid 1980’s, and has been involved in the implementation of large-scale water recycling programs for Orange County, San Diego, and San Jose. Tom has served as chair of the American Water Works Association Water Reuse Committee, vice-chair of the Water Environment Federation/AWWA Water Reuse Task Force, and is currently chair of the WateReuse Association Potable Reuse Committee. 

“Water reuse is the epitome of sustainable water management; it augments water supply, offers alternative wastewater management strategies, and provides both local and global environmental benefit.  Woodard & Curran offers me the platform to do what I love: engage communities and work with them to identify how water recycling can support their pursuit of sustainability.”
