WALNUT CREEK, CA, MARCH 18, 2020 -- The International Ultraviolet Association (IUVA) has inducted Brown and Caldwell Senior Principal Dr. Erin Mackey to its board of directors.

The leading authority on UV technology, the IUVA is focused on advancing the sciences, engineering, and applications of UV technologies to enhance the quality of human life and to protect the environment.

As Brown and Caldwell’s UV process lead, Dr. Mackey’s background includes over 20 years of experience in highly technical drinking water, recycled water, wastewater, and industrial projects, ranging from pilot studies to design and regulatory guidance. Her expertise includes UV disinfection; advanced oxidation and adsorptive processes; regulatory compliance; and water quality and treatability evaluation. In addition to conventional process engineering, Dr. Mackey manages municipal, federal, and research projects. She has published numerous reports and peer-reviewed papers on UV disinfection systems and technologies for the treatment of contaminated water.

Dr. Mackey has led the UV process design on many civil infrastructure projects across North America and the Pacific, including managing the U.S.’ first long-term drinking water UV disinfection pilot study in the late 1990s.

Dr. Kati Bell, past IUVA president, commented, “I am thrilled that Erin has joined IUVA’s board of respected industry leaders. Her dedication and technical expertise will be of tremendous benefit not only to her peers but also to IUVA members and the broader communities and industries they serve.”

A licensed professional engineer, Dr. Mackey holds a doctorate and a master’s in environmental science and engineering, and a bachelor’s in environmental engineering. She is based in Brown and Caldwell’s Walnut Creek, Calif., office.
