Freese and Nichols Expands North Carolina Team with Three Water/Wastewater Engineers
Freese and Nichols has enhanced our water/wastewater capabilities for partners throughout North Carolina with the additions of David Malinauskas, P.E., Brian White, P.E., and Marsha Leroux, E.I.T.
David and Brian are senior project managers in Raleigh, and Marsha is a project engineer in Greensboro.
“The expertise that Dave, Brian and Marsha add to our team enables us to provide expanded water/wastewater services to our partners and positions us to develop new relationships statewide,” said Bryan Jann, Vice President in Raleigh. “They each understand the unique water/wastewater challenges municipalities face, and they are committed to finding innovative ways to solve complex issues.”
David has almost 20 years of experience in all phases of water and sewer utility design projects, including hydraulic model development, utility planning, route analysis and permitting. He has been involved in numerous large, rural municipal water distribution systems, water system extensions, elevated storage tanks, site planning for utilities infrastructure, and municipal sewer force mains and pump station design projects. In addition, David has worked with municipalities to design utility pipeline replacements where maintenance of service and cost control are critical design factors. He has worked closely with public utilities and municipalities across North Carolina, including the City of Raleigh, City of Durham, Orange Water and Sewer Authority and Greenville Utilities Commission.
David earned his bachelor’s degree, magna cum laude, in environmental engineering from North Carolina State University in Raleigh.
Brian joins us as the lead engineer for hydraulic modeling and master planning efforts in North Carolina. At his previous firm, he oversaw all hydraulic modeling-related projects and supervised modeling project teams. Over the course of his career, he has acquired a wealth of knowledge in water/wastewater and reclaimed water system design, such as pumps, pipelines and tanks, and master planning. Additionally, Brian has a deep understanding of system modeling for water distribution networks and sewer collection systems, including fire flow modeling, transient and surge analysis, GIS and model integration, operational system modeling and general system troubleshooting.
Brian earned his bachelor’s degree in civil engineering, with a focus on water resources, from North Carolina State University in Raleigh.
Marsha is spearheading our efforts in the Triad, a role that builds on her background in master planning and hydraulic modeling. Throughout her career, she has worked closely with clients to develop master plans, evaluate system conditions, and create models to identify existing problems and future capital improvement projects. In addition to providing insight on city ordinances and state regulations, Marsha has been involved in preparing long-term regional and county water supply plans, including evaluating supply sources and transmission alignment alternatives, analyzing opportunities for shared infrastructure, and developing cost estimates and improvement recommendations.
Marsha earned her bachelor’s degree, summa cum laude, in civil engineering with a minor in mathematics from Texas A&M University in College Station.
