CAMBRIDGE, Massachusetts—CDM Smith is proud to announce that Eric M. Spargimino, PE, LEED AP, has received a 2012 Young Professional of the Year Award from the American Council of Engineering Companies (ACEC). He is also the recipient of the 2012 Young Professional of the Year Award by the Massachusetts Chapter of ACEC. Both awards recognize the accomplishments of young engineers through their interesting and unique work, as well as the resulting effect on society. Additionally, Spargimino is nominated as one of the New Faces of Engineering 2012 program, sponsored by the National Engineers Week Foundation.
Spargimino is an environmental engineer based in the firm’s Cambridge, Massachusetts, USA office, with experience in the design of wastewater treatment facilities.

In 2007, he drove a car—that he converted to run on recycled vegetable oil—from New York to California to promote the environment and engineering to young students attending WEFTEC 2007, the Water Environment Federation’s annual wastewater conference.
As a design engineer, Spargimino was task manager for the $23 million upgrade of a wastewater treatment solids handing facility in Massachusetts. Spargimino is currently leading a multi-disciplined team in the design of all solids handling facilities at another Massachusetts wastewater treatment plant. He also has experience in pumping station design, facilities evaluations, infiltration/inflow and sewer system evaluation studies, and is currently evaluating systems at Deer Island sewage treatment plant, New England’s largest wastewater treatment facility.
