John F. Winkler, P.E.


As one of the most highly regarded water resource professionals; John Winkler has more than 40 years of experience in the design of water and wastewater treatment and pumping facilities for over 60 million gallons per day of capacity throughout North America. His clients include municipalities, utility districts, industries and private corporations. Specifically, he has provided project management, professional design, and client management from project inception to completion for over 100 water and wastewater treatment facilities; the development of large scale public water supply well-fields; and hundreds of miles of water and wastewater pipelines up to 60 inches in diameter.

Mr. Winkler’s strength and reputation lies in his ability to receive and assimilate input from both owners and operators. Based on this input, efficient, operator friendly processes are incorporated into the final design. He is a methodical engineer capable of synthesizing multiple sets of data into manageable pieces.

An active member of the American Water Works Association (AWWA) and Water Environment Federation (WEF), Mr. Winkler has also served on Texas Commission on Environmental Quality (TCEQ) rules committees assisting in the formulation of design criteria for water and wastewater systems across the State. Mr. Winkler authored the new TCEQ Chapter 217 rules on wastewater pumping systems enacted in August 2008.
