Dr. Mark LeChevallier is the principal and manager of Dr. Water Consulting, a part-time consulting business, after retiring from American Water at the beginning of 2018. Dr. LeChevallier received his Bachelor of Science and Masters degrees in Microbiology from Oregon State University, and his Ph.D. in Microbiology from Montana State University. Dr. LeChevallier has authored over 300 research papers and has received numerous awards for outstanding contributions to the science of water treatment. He was the recipient of the George Warren Fuller award in 1997 from the New Jersey section of the American Water Works Association, the Abel Wolman Award in 2012 and the A.P. Black award for research in 2015, both from the American Water Works Association. Dr. LeChevallier currently serves as a member of the Water Science Technology Board of the National Academies of Science, Engineering and Medicine, and was appointed in 2019 to the Drinking Water Subcommittee, and in 2021 as a charter member of the USEPA Science Advisory Board. He is a fellow of the American Academy of Microbiology.
