Centennial Water recognizes engineers during National Engineers Week
The week of Feb. 20 is National Engineer's Week; an opportunity to celebrate how engineers are making a difference in our world. Centennial Water employs a number of engineers at its water and wastewater treatment plants.
Peter Bong is the Water and Wastewater Superintendent for Centennial Water. On a day to day basis he works with the operators and maintenance personnel to ensure the safe and reliable production of potable water and the protection of the environment through the effective treatment of wastewater.
"My job is rewarding as there are new challenges every day covering all aspects of engineering: mechanical, electrical, controls, chemistry and biology," said Peter. "Centennial Water provides a valuable service to the community, providing drinking water and protecting the environment, and it's great to be able to be a part of that process."
Peter has an engineering degree from the University of Illinois with a focus in structural engineering. When not working, Peter enjoys hiking, watching football, playing golf and cheering on the Chicago Cubs.
