July 31, 2012
KCI Technologies Inc., a multi-disciplined engineering firm with offices throughout the eastern and central U.S., welcomes Michael A. Schober, PE, to lead the firm’s Environmental Engineering Practice in the Northeast region. Schober has 27 years of experience in planning, analysis, design, modeling, and permitting for water and wastewater system, solid and hazardous waste management and environmental engineering projects. In this new role, he will be responsible for business development, strategic planning, project management, and quality control and assurance.
For more than four decades, KCI has provided planning, permitting, engineering and construction management services for water and wastewater projects throughout the Mid-Atlantic region. Award-winning efforts have included enhanced nutrient removal projects at the Mattawoman and Patapsco wastewater treatment plants, the latter being the most complex plant configuration in the U.S. to attempt the technology at that time.
Schober’s experience includes extensive work for the city of Lancaster, Springettsbury Township, and the Greater Pottsville Area Sewer Authority. His work has been nationally recognized with accolades from the Environmental Protection Agency and the Water Environment Federation.
“Mike is a well-known and respected environmental engineer throughout Pennsylvania,” said Environmental Engineering Discipline Manager and Senior Vice President Thomas G. Sprehe, PE, BCEE. “At his previous firm he built and led a strong environmental practice, and we are confident he can help KCI expand our service offerings throughout the Northeast region.”
Schober earned his bachelor’s degree in civil engineering from Villanova University and is a registered professional engineer in several states. In 2012, he received a Governor’s Award for Local Government Excellence in Pennsylvania. The Water Environment Federation presented Schober with the George J. Schroepfer Medal for excellence in the application of economics in the design of wastewater facilities. He was also honored by the Chesapeake Water Environment Association with the Leonard M. Glass Memorial Award for his work on wastewater treatment facilities at Conococheague, Md. Schober currently serves on the boards of the Housing Development Corporation MidAtlantic and Columbia Catholic Housing for the Elderly. Previously he was president of the Pennsylvania Municipal Authorities Association and the Eastern Pennsylvania Water Pollution Control Operators Association.
