HR Green’s Norman Miranda Named to State Advisory Committee
Minnesota Gov. Mark Dayton has appointed eight people, including HR Green’s Norman Miranda, to a new committee to advise the Minnesota Pollution Control Agency (MPCA). The new board is a citizen’s advisory panel, meeting regularly to help “guide the direction and enforcement” of Minnesota’s environmental protection laws.
Miranda is a Senior Technical Advisor in HR Green’s St. Paul, MN office, where he currently services as the Executive Director of the Central Iron Range Sanitary Sewer District. He recently served as manager in the Minneapolis Public Works Surface Water and Sewers Department. He has nearly 40 years of experience in the water and wastewater utility industry as a facility operator, utility manager and consultant. As a Minnesota Class A Wastewater/Class B Water and Iowa Grade 4 Certified Operator, he has hands-on experience in both the private and public sectors at facilities ranging from less than 1 MGD to in excess of 100 MGD.
“Norm Miranda’s appointment is an example of the leadership and expertise HR Green prides itself on attracting and nurturing,” said Jim Rasmussen, PE, Water Business Line President. “We are proud that he has been chosen to serve the citizens of Minnesota on this important committee.”
Miranda’s utility experience includes facility operations/process control, bio-solids management, engineering design operability, water distribution/wastewater collection management, operation, maintenance and management, utility benchmarking, NPDES permitting, utility business consulting, asset management, CSO/SSO and CMOM programs as well as capital improvements planning and grant writing.
