Craig Lindell founded AquaPoint in 1992. He considered the AquaPoint as that point where human communities and the natural systems on which they were dependent converged around water, the common resource essential to each.
Inspired by 1995 and 1996 conferences on integrated water resource management and the watershed agenda, Craig positioned AquaPoint for the biological treatment of wastewater from residential, commercial, institutional, and industrial facilities to TMDL (Total Maximum Daily Load) compliance standards. He has been active at the committee level of the Water Environment Federation and at the Board and Committee levels of the Water and Wastewater Equipment Manufacturer’s Association.
He is known in the industry for his thought leadership on scalable approaches to sewer, the economic advantages of aligning the delivery of wastewater treatment with the demand for it, and designing municipal sewer with the capacity to pay for itself.
He has published numerous articles and speaks nationally on scalable wastewater management and the watershed agenda. Craig continues to contribute to AquaPoint by writing various blog pieces once a month, which can be found here.
