Liz Sitter, Professional Engineer

Elizabeth (Liz) is a Civil and Environmental Engineer with 17 years’ experience in water, wastewater, and reuse water infrastructure including pipelines, pumping stations, water storage and treatment plants. Liz graduated from George Mason University with a BS in Civil and Infrastructure Engineering in 2001 and is a professional engineer in Virginia and Maryland.

Liz managed a Reclaimed Water Program development in Ashburn Virginia. She developed the reuse application, Reclaimed Water Management Plan, Cross Connection, and Backflow Prevention Program, public outreach, reclaimed water rate development, and service agreement templates.

She implemented the use of these documents through design, and construction of approximately 5 miles of 16” diameter reclaimed water main, and a dispensing station. These projects included permitting, stream crossings and use of trenchless technologies to cross limited access highways and roads.
She obtained funding for two reclaimed water pipeline projects, totaling approximately $1.8 million, through the Virginia Department of Environmental Quality’s (DEQ’s) Virginia Clean Water Revolving Loan Fund. Additional project requirements associated with this funding source included Davis-Bacon requirements, SWAM/DBE solicitation, and Buy American.

2008 through 2010, Liz presented 26 times to various audiences about Loudoun Water’s Reclaimed Water Program, including potential customers, Loudoun County Economic Development, the Bureau of Reclamation, and water professionals at state conferences.

Liz also has experience in successful collaboration with internal and external customers, contractors, and regulatory agencies in construction management and administration, plan review, capital construction, and land development projects.
