Zane Green named as Morrison-Maierle Wyoming Water-Wastewater Office Leader
Morrison-Maierle is pleased to announce that Zane Green has been named as the new Water-Wastewater Office Leader for its Wyoming operations in Gillette, Cody, Casper, and Sheridan. He will be responsible for the leadership and management for Morrison-Maierle’s water and wastewater project work in Wyoming.
Zane graduated from South Dakota School of Mines and Technology in 2001 with a B.S. in applied mathematics and a minor in computer science. In 2000, he co-founded a multimedia internet company where he was the graphic designer and animation programmer for online safety training videos and websites. While operating this company, he pursued a M.S. degree in civil and environmental engineering, graduating in 2006. He was hired by our Great Falls office and moved to Gillette in 2018 to open that office. He serves on the Public Works and Utility Advisory Committee for the City of Gillette.
Zane’s expertise is in street rehabilitation and water-wastewater systems, particularly, the modelling aspect. His interest in modelling started in graduate school where he focused on various mixing models associated BOD removal and nitrification in suspended-growth wastewater reactors. His work was published in Chemical Engineering Communications.
Zane and his wife, Brenda, have four children: Merrick, 10; Thatcher, 8; Rutger, 6; and Annie, 3 weeks old. In his spare time, he brews beer. He says that “brewing beer is the precipice of environmental engineering as it involves designing a recipe around the physical chemical interactions of the mash, the biological activity of fermentation, and the mechanical finishing to produce the art of the hobby: the flavor. As engineers, we don’t often to get to taste the byproducts of our designs.”
