Ken Eyre, PE

Ken Eyre, P.E. has served many East coast communities for more than four decades, applying his extensive engineering experience to diverse infrastructure challenges.  Across the water, wastewater, stormwater, and solid waste sectors, he not only provides innovative infrastructure re-investment assessments, but also has led public agency regulatory compliance initiatives addressing system operation, maintenance, capital budgeting and planning. Ken has managed multi-firm teams tackling complex projects.  He has also managed environmental improvement programs addressing orders of consent and regulatory audits. 

 

As an Associate with Greeley and Hansen, Ken successfully developed a region-wide consent decree involving the City of Norfolk, Hampton Roads Sanitation District, and the Commonwealth of Virginia.  In this consent decree, Norfolk was the first locality required to develop corrective measures eliminating sanitary sewer overflows.  Through Ken's leadership, Norfolk met all consent decree requirements, including a 15-year spending plan.  The plan not only achieved sanitary sewer improvements but also addressed water system improvements, packaged as capital and maintenance neighbor infrastructure improvement projects.  As Project Coordinator, Ken was one of the first U.S. engineers to apply the United Kingdom's Water Research Centre's (WRc) Sewerage Rehabilitation Manual and pipe condition methodology for sanitary, storm, and combined sewars, in Newark, NJ; Milwaukee, WI; and Kansas City. MO.  WRc's pipe condition methodology is the basis for the NASSCO Pipeline Assessment Certification Program (PACP).  Ken promoted training of PACP users, participated in training of DC Water and Arlington County staff, and oversaw the certified PACP Master Trainer.

Ken also served as Greeley and Hansen's Urban Infrastructure Group's (UIG) national lead for over 18 years, bringing together sewer and water infrastructure specialists across the firm discussing technical engineering challenges and identifying solutions and support needs.  He nurtured and provided co-workers and engineering colleagues with infrastructure engineering-related training.
