Donald Q. Bunker, PE Named Director of Education and Training 

September 2016

The New England Water Works Association’s (NEWWA) Executive Director, Stephen Ryan, recently named Donald Q. Bunker, P.E., as the association’s new Director of Education and Training, after the retirement of Ted Kenney, who served the association for 28 years in that capacity. 

“Don is truly an exceptional candidate, with more than 20 years of experience as a highly respected engineer and educator in the drinking water profession,” said Ryan.  “Those of you who know Don know how dedicated he is to NEWWA and the mission of our organization.  I am confident he will do an excellent job.”       

Don’s water works career began in 1993 at a major engineering firm. He became involved with NEWWA shortly thereafter via the Filtration Committee, where he gave his first presentation for the association on: “Hands-on Control of Coagulation and Filtration Processes.” He joined NEWWA’s staff for the first time in 1996  as an instructor/education coordinator, then moved on to a position in the private sector as a project manager in 1998. However, he continued with NEWWA as an adjunct faculty member since then and developed multiple courses for its training program.  

Throughout his career Don has served as a general manager for a water utility and, for the past 12 years, he worked as an associate/project manager for a major engineering firm. He has also presented technical papers before the American Water Works Association, NEWWA, the International Water Quality Association, Maine Water Utilities Association, and the New Hampshire Water Works Association.

In 2016, Don received the Kenneth J. Miller Founders Award from Water For People at ‪‎AWWA’s ACE16 Conference in Chicago, and in 2015 he received the McGinnis Award from the Massachusetts Water Works Association. He has also been an active volunteer on many of NEWWA’s committees, including Sponsor Services, Filtration, and Water for People.‬ ‬ 

Don holds a B.S. in Civil Engineering from Northeastern University and a M.S. in Environmental Engineering from the University of Massachusetts. He is a registered  Professional Engineer in Massachusetts; holds Grades 2D and 3T(OIT) water operator licenses in Massachusetts; and is OSHA 10 certified. He begins his new position with NEWWA on October 3.

Please join NEWWA in welcoming Don to his new role.
