David Averill, EIT

Capaccio Environmental Engineering, Inc. is proud to announce the promotion of David Averill to Senior Environmental Engineer. Aligning with CAPACCIO’S mission of “Helping Industry and the Environment Prosper” and in delivering high value total solutions to our clients, Dave has been a consistent key player in bringing a variety of water/wastewater engineering and related projects to fruition for CAPACCIO clients. Dave’s promotion will further elevate his role within the Water/Wastewater Engineering group.

A multi-talented engineer, Dave has been instrumental in providing our clients with his wastewater expertise in permitting, system design, system evaluation and optimization, construction administration, commissioning, operator training, operation, sampling, testing, and environmental reporting. He supports several CAPACCIO clients who are regulated by the Massachusetts Water Resource Authority (MWRA) and provides compliance strategy, permit negotiation support, regulatory filings and correspondence, and other engineering assistance.

Dave began as an Environmental Engineer at CAPACCIO in 2014 and quickly came up to speed to assist the engineering team in many areas most notably in using AutoCAD to depict all types of drawings from simple process flow diagrams to more complex piping and instrument diagrams as well as site plans. He became an effective contributor to a variety of projects, including assisting with Spill Prevention, Control and Countermeasure (SPCC) and Stormwater (SW) plans.

In recent years, Dave has successfully stepped into the Project Manager role and became the facilitator and instructor for CAPACCIO’S Wastewater Treatment Operator Exam Prep and Training Contact Hour (TCH) courses. Dave holds a Bachelor of Science, Chemical Engineering, Worcester Polytechnic Institute (WPI) and is also an Engineer-in-Training (EIT).

Ben Lilly, EIT

CAPACCIO is also happy to announce a new addition to its growing engineering team, Benjamin (Ben) Lilly, EIT. Ben, a University of Rhode Island graduate with a degree in Civil and Environmental Engineering, joins our team as an Environmental Engineer (ES1).

Ben who successfully achieved his Engineer-in-Training (EIT) certification in March 2018, has skills in AutoCAD as well as experience working as a water quality field technician, a Best Management Practices (BMP) inspector, and a Sustainability intern.

Dave and Ben work together with others on CAPACCIO’s talented Water/Wastewater Engineering design team on a variety of projects.  For example, the team, led by Director of Engineering, Art Cunningham, PE, LSP, is nearing completion on a project for a large institution which has involved extensive sampling of labs and water use/discharges in numerous buildings to determine eligibility for a low flow low pollutant permit. This ongoing project involves tracking calculated flow rates for the numerous locations and tying the sample data to the actual files from the lab. To make the project more efficient and to ensure accuracy of the data, the engineering team is working with CAPACCIO’s Solutions Design team to develop and implement a customized solution utilizing CAPACCIO’s software as a service, EHS-DashboardTM, to meet project needs and objectives. Stay tuned for the complete write-up when the project is completed.
