    Jeff PrevattThe Pima County Regional Wastewater Reclamation Department congratulates Dr. Jeff Prevatt on his recent appointment to the position of Deputy Director of the Treatment Division.

    Dr. Prevatt has worked for RWRD for 24 years, beginning as the Inorganic Laboratory Supervisor in 1994. During his tenure, he spearheaded various RWRD initiatives like the Struvite Abatement Project and the development of the Pima County Water Campus.

    He was also the team leader for the Southwest Water Campus’ award winning Arizona Pure Water Brew Challenge.

    The entry to the 2016 New Arizona Prize: Water Innovation Challenge utilized ultra-pure reclaimed water to brew craft beer. To accomplish this, the team created a mobile advanced water treatment facility to travel through various Arizona cities and towns. The water treatment facilities for each jurisdiction would then partner with local breweries to see who could create the best tasting beer using reclaimed water.

    Dr. Prevatt has proven himself to be an invaluable member of RWRD, and we look forward to the future contributions he is certain to make in his new position.
