Virgil is a Senior Vice President at Fuss & O’Neill and a leader in our Water and Natural Resources Business Line. He has four decades of experience in wastewater systems engineering, serving municipalities, state agencies, and private clients. Virgil’s interest in water quality stems from the destructive environmental events he witnessed growing up: frequent oil spills, the demise of bird species due to pesticides, and the pollutants in the Cuyahoga River in Cleveland catching fire. As such, he has dedicated his career to environmental engineering, specifically to that most precious of resources, water.
Virgil workings collaboratively with his clients to develop and implement practical and affordable solutions to complex challenges. He is a regional leader, currently serving as President of the New England Water Environment Association, as a board member of the Connecticut Water Pollution Abatement Association, and as past chair of the CSO/Wet Weather Issues Committee. Virgil has decades of experience working with the CTDEEP Clean Water Fund program, and has developed a deep understanding of the program requirements, which has helped him assist clients in maximizing their funding eligibility.
