Overland Park, Kansas, May 13, 2016—Jonathan Loveland, a leader in the project development and execution of alternative water supply solutions, has joined Black & Veatch’s water business. Based in Irvine, California, Loveland will serve as Global Practice Leader for the Alternative Water Supply business line, which includes all types of desalination, reclaimed and recycled water projects.
“The importance of alternative supplies such as water reuse, brackish groundwater and desalination continues to grow as organizations look to build diversified, resilient water sources,” said Cindy Wallis-Lage, President of Black & Veatch’s water business. “Jonathan’s experience in process and treatment solutions can help service providers develop a diversified resource portfolio, adding system resilience and delivering safe, reliable and cost-effective water supplies.”
With a global portfolio of award-winning desalination and reuse projects, Black & Veatch assists communities around the world in the search for new water resource solutions.

Loveland was responsible for the project’s planning, permitting, preliminary design, and contract negotiation/execution, as well as the execution of its design-build phase, including drinking water permitting and National Pollutant Discharge Elimination Systems (NPDES) permit compliance. Additionally, he was responsible for all technical elements of detailed design, construction management, commissioning and operations.
