Trussell Technologies is pleased to announce that Bryan Trussell has joined our firm!

Bryan received his B.S. in Civil Engineering from the University of California at Berkeley and M.S. in Environmental Engineering from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. Bryan is a registered Civil Engineer in the State of California with more than ten years of work experience. Bryan has worked for the past 9 years with the City of Los Angeles’ Bureau of Sanitation, bringing invaluable insight and perspective to the many challenges facing today’s utilities. His Master’s thesis was focused on the softening process (useful in many high recovery RO applications), investigating the impacts of preexisting solids on the precipitation kinetics of calcium carbonate. His past work also includes assisting with the negotiation of the Hyperion and Terminal Island Treatment Plants NPDES permits as all as the calibration of the MIKE URBAN hydrodynamic model for the City of Los Angeles’ wastewater collection system.
