Rich Humann Featured in Long Island Business News’ Forecast for ’24
Long Island Business News recently looked to Long Island leaders to reveal their predictions for 2024. Below is an excerpt of the article coming from our own President and CEO, Rich Humann, P.E.
H2M architects + engineers is committed to working with its municipal clients to fortify infrastructure in the face of evolving challenges. In 2024, we’ll see intensified efforts to storm-harden community infrastructure, especially in areas that have borne the brunt of damage during recent storms and floods. Municipalities and utilities are aligning strategies to enhance resilience, shore up coastlines and upgrade energy transmission and distribution systems. This collecting initiative aims to expand our ability to withstand future weather challenges. 2024 will also mark a significant leap in Long Island’s embrace of renewable energy sources. While prior years focused on planning, we chose implementation as this year’s theme — especially regarding ambitious wind power projects and safe energy storage initiatives. We’ll continue to help transform public libraries into community spaces that utilize cutting-edge technology to enhance and expand the suite of programming available to the public. When thinking about infrastructure, nothing is more important than drinking water systems.
2024 will be another crucial year in the relentless pursuit of eliminating emerging contaminants and enhancing treatment operations to meet increasingly strict regulations. H2M’s water district customers remain trailblazers, boasting fully operational Advanced Oxidation Process systems to effectively combat 1,4-dioxane. Our “Box” approach condensed the period to have operational treatment from 18 months to six. We look forward to implementing new creative solutions for the next wave of contaminants to be regulated.
