"He has successfully spearheaded some of the largest infrastructure projects in the Midwest area, designing and implementing solutions in extremely adverse conditions. His outstanding leadership skills, coupled with his extensive experience and proven expertise in water supply projects, makes him the ideal person to lead this office."

Green has worked with several municipal utility clients throughout Illinois, Mississippi, Michigan, and Wisconsin. He worked with the Green Bay Water Utility in Green Bay, WI, for 12 years, serving as a project manager for a number of design and contract administration tasks. These included the expansion of a 10-million-gallon-per-day (mgd) raw water pumping station, construction of approximately 17 miles of 54-inch steel water transmission main, and expansion of its water treatment plant in 1997 and 2004. He also oversaw a $376-million project in DuPage County, IL, where he was responsible for contract administration and construction management of 140 miles of water transmission mains, ranging from 12 to 90 inches, a 340-mgd pump station and a 30 million gallon concrete reservoir, and a 185-mgd pump station and 30-million-gallon concrete reservoir.
