Background and Experience

Kay Curtin

Kay Curtin has been in the profession of wastewater treatment for the past 40+ years; as a municipal operator, an industrial pre-treatment plant operator, laboratory director, technician, consultant and trainer. She attended Moraine Park Technical College and the University of Wisconsin.

Her current position is Program Supervisor for four of the eight Metropolitan Council Environmental Services wastewater facilities serving St. Paul, Minneapolis and 106 other cities and districts in the Metropolitan area. She and her husband Rick also own Curtin Consulting and Training, LLC., providing water, wastewater, management and safety technical assistance and training across the U.S. She is Past-President of the Wisconsin Wastewater Operators' Association, President-Elect of the Minnesota Wastewater Operators' Association, has won numerous service awards including the Koby Crabtree award from Wisconsin Wastewater Operator's Association and the Golden Manhole award from Central States Water Environment Association, and has presented at numerous professional conferences. Luckily and happily, Kay has been able to work with some of the top names rolex replica in wastewater treatment. She also owes a great deal to all of the small-town Wisconsin and Minnesota water and wastewater operators for sharing their knowledge of how to fix anything in any weather with very little help, time, or spare parts.

In her spare time, Kay like to garden, bow hunt, fish, play with her granddaughter and look at mixed liquor under a microscope. She lives in rural Northwestern Wisconsin on a farm with her husband and two bird dogs.
