Aaron Thomas’s more than 25-year engineering career was exemplified by countless instances where he went above and beyond to solve a water system’s challenges, even when it required getting dirty by fixing filters and chutes with his own tools and hands. His hands-on approach to improving water and wastewater treatment facilities throughout the Mid-Atlantic region included preparing the next generation of engineers to do the same.
