MWH Global, the global wet infrastructure sector leader and provider of strategic consulting, environmental engineering and construction services, today announced the expansion of the firm’s Southern California practice. The addition of vice presidents Joe Lauria and John Hanula provides increased expertise on a variety of water and wastewater issues for municipalities and companies operating in the region, further strengthening the MWH position as a leader in the area.

Joe Lauria has joined the firm as Vice President, and Area Manager – Municipal Water/Wastewater, for the Orange County Market, based in the Irvine, California office. Lauria brings more than 30 years of experience in the municipal water and wastewater business. The majority of those years were spent with Malcolm Pirnie, Inc. (MPI) in locations throughout the U.S. The last thirteen years have been focused in California. In his new role, Lauria will be responsible for directing, planning and coordinating the MWH business development and growth strategy in Orange County and other portions of the Southern Los Angeles Basin area.

A Diplomate of the American Academy of Environmental Engineers and Scientists, Lauria served as MPIs Technical Director of Engineering Services for ten years and developed their national Capital Project Delivery guidance document, establishing procedures to implement alternative project delivery methods, as well as traditional methods, for water and wastewater projects. After the acquisition of MPI by ARCADIS, Lauria became the National Design-Build Leader. He has been responsible for more than $1.5 billion in capital projects from New York to California, and most recently served as the Project Director of the contractor’s engineer for the Carlsbad Seawater Desalination Facility, the largest seawater desalination facility in the western hemisphere. The work, now 60 percent constructed, has a total design, construction and financing budget in excess of $900 million.

“Joe’s recognition as a successful business leader, practice builder and principal in charge of major engineering projects across the country will greatly strengthen the MWH prominent California consultancy and bring significant value to our clients,” said Dr. Steven Weber, Southwest Regional Manager for MWH in the Americas. “In addition to two decades of work for the Orange County Sanitation District and other major agencies, his vision and leadership on the Carlsbad Seawater Desalination Project is indicative of the type of thinking needed to address complex problems in the arid west amidst record drought. He’s the latest addition to the team that MWH is building to provide creative, value-added solutions and solidify our industry leadership.”

Lauria holds bachelor’s and master’s degrees in civil/environmental engineering from Manhattan College in New York City. He is a registered Professional Engineer in three states, a past member of the Executive Board of the California Association of Sanitation Agencies (CASA), current member of the Executive Board of the Water Design-Build Council (WDBC) and current member of the Civil & Environmental Engineering Committee at the University of California, Irvine.
