Gerald Reed passes exam to become Public Water Supply Operator

Fehr Graham, a leading Midwest engineering and environmental firm, announced that Environmental Health and Safety Technician Gerald Reed passed the exam to become a licensed, Illinois Department of Public Health (IDPH) Non-Transient, Non-Community Public Water Supply Operator.

"Gerald is always looking to increase his knowledge to help more of our clients," said Freeport Branch Manager Ken Thompson, who is also one of the firm's eight owners. "He is dedicated and brings a passion to everything he takes on to deliver real results for our clients."

According to the IDPH, non-community public water systems are facilities such as schools, factories, restaurants, resorts and churches served by their own water supply (usually a well). These facilities are required to provide a safe and adequate supply of water under the federal Safe Drinking Water Act. The license allows Reed to help companies manage drinking water and water systems for Fehr Graham clients.

Reed joined Fehr Graham in 2018. He lives in Warren, Illinois.
