Over the course of his 13 years as a collection systems infrastructure planning engineer, David Garcia has gained diverse experience and mastery in hydraulic modeling, strategic master planning, flow analysis, asset management, and condition assessment.
David began his career in wastewater collection systems by performing condition assessment and flow monitoring. He brings the unique perspective of his field experience to strategic planning and alternatives development. This introduction to collection systems, together with specialist training from experts in Melbourne, Australia in 2007, has provided David with sound and practical understanding of hydraulic modeling.
David has been lead hydraulic modeler and project engineer for several large consent decree programs across the southern United States. During his employment with Black and Veatch and RJN Group, he acquired extensive experience calibrating models, evaluating alternatives, and developing Long Term Control Plans (LTCPs). By integrating asset management and condition assessment into the evaluation/planning process, David’s teams developed unique solutions that eliminated sanitary sewer overflows while reducing the cost of planned improvements.
In addition to his professional engineering skills, David brings excellent communication skills and passion for the water industry. He strives to produce innovative, holistic, and robust solutions to provide clean, safe water for communities.
In 2017, David joined WCS Engineering to lead the US business practice. He is based in Dallas, Texas. David is responsible for project management and client service management in the US and is actively involved in the technical delivery of projects undertaken by WCS Engineering in the US, Australia, and New Zealand.
