 Lincoln, NE and Denver, CO – October 30, 2018 – Huffman Engineering, Inc., a leader in control systems integration for the water and wastewater industries, today announced that three engineers from the company will present educational seminars at the American Water Works Association (AWWA) Nebraska Section Fall 2018 Conference. The event is held jointly with the Nebraska chapters of the American Public Works Association (APWA) and Water Environment Association (NWEA) at the Younes Conference Center in Kearney, NE November 7-9, 2018.

On Thursday, November 8, 2018 at 11:30 am, Senior Electrical Engineer James Fricke, P.E. will present “Control System Documentation – Who Needs It?” at the NWEA Conference.  The presentation will help attendees identify the various stages of a project and the associated instrumentation and controls documents that are used for each.  On Friday, November 9, 2018 at 8:30 am, Engineering Manager Keith Mandachit and Mechanical Engineer Jay Steinman will present “Cybersecurity” at the Nebraska Section of the AWWA.  The presentation will educate attendees about cybersecurity and industrial control systems with a case study on a customer’s ransomware attack in June 2017.  Also on Friday, November 9, 2018, Mechanical Engineer Alex Winking will co-present with Amit Shrivastava of HDR “Hastings Reverse Osmosis Water Treatment Project: Design and Implementation.”  The presentation begins at 10:30 am.

Attending for the 21st consecutive year, Huffman Engineering will participate in the conference’s Expo and share the company’s expertise and experience in the implementation of turnkey automation solutions for sustainable and intelligent water infrastructure technologies.  New control system technologies allow utilities to optimize and measure productivity, access and analyze critical operational data, automate regulatory documentation, improve network security and manage facility costs.

“Huffman Engineering continues to stay on the cutting edge of technologies related to the water and wastewater industries,” said Howard Huffman, president of Huffman Engineering.  “We are honored to share our wealth of experience with conference attendees through our presentations.”

Huffman Engineering is currently working on the final phase of a three-phase project for a water treatment plant modernization for the City of Omaha at the Missouri River Wastewater Treatment Plant.  This phase includes the design and implementation of the instrumentation and controls for a new chemical treatment building and chlorine contact basin.  These facilities will be utilized to treat wet weather flows into the plant before being discharged to the Missouri River.  In an earlier phase, Huffman Engineering designed and installed the instrumentation and controls, resulting in an expansion of capacity, an increase in efficiency, and a reduction of the amount of wastewater flowing through the storm sewer system.
