September 27, 2018

Prein&Newhof is proud to announce that Governor Snyder recently appointed P&N Vice President and Senior Project Manager Mark Prein, PE to the State of Michigan Environmental Permit Review Commission.

Established by Public Act 268 of 2018, the Environmental Permit Review Commission was created within the Michigan Department of Environmental Quality to act in an advisory capacity. The commission is comprised of 15 members appointed by the Governor with experience in engineering, geology, hydrology, hydrogeology or a field of engineering or science related to air or water.

When appropriate, the MDEQ Department Director may call a panel of three commission members, based on their area of expertise, to form an Environmental Permit Panel to review and advise on permit applications.

As a senior project manager at P&N, Mark works on a variety of civil and environmental engineering projects; his primary focus is leading the company’s water and wastewater treatment practice areas.

Mark is a licensed professional engineer in Michigan and Indiana. He holds a Bachelor of Science in Civil Engineering from the University of Notre Dame and a Master of Science in Civil Engineering from Northwestern University. He is actively involved in professional associations, including the Michigan Water Environment Association, Michigan Society of Professional Engineers, American Water Works Association, American Society of Civil Engineers, and the American Membrane Technology Association.

Congratulations to Mark for this significant achievement and recognition.
