The Urban Water Solutions family has grown this week with the appointment of Stephen D’Agata as a Principal Engineer. Stephen brings over 35 years of experience in water supply and sewerage infrastructure planning, modelling and asset management to the team.
He commenced his engineering career with the Melbourne and Metropolitan Board of Works in 1988 and went on to pioneer the use of computerised hydraulic modelling for sewerage network analysis and catchment planning at Yarra Valley Water in 1995. He then led the water supply and sewerage asset management team for Goulburn Valley Water before managing the provision of network modelling, GIS, and asset management services for the Australian branch of a multinational engineering consultancy.
Over the past decade, Stephen has managed drainage services and implemented flood mapping for two inner Melbourne city councils, held an executive position on the Stormwater Victoria committee, and worked as a Principal Consultant providing water management services to both the private and public sector.
An accomplished wordsmith, Stephen’s skills in written and verbal communication have been used to translate detailed hydraulic model results into outputs that have been used to garner investment for several major infrastructure projects.
Outside of work, Stephen is a published novelist, actor in amateur theatre, YouTuber, and occasional stand-up comedian.
A long-time friend of many of our team members, we greatly look forward to Stephen sharing his knowledge and experience with us and our clients.
