V3 and the InternationalWater team welcomes Eric Delva as our Haiti in-country water engineer.  He has 28 years of experience as an engineer in water, wastewater and transportation – with the last 16 years at the New York City Department of Environmental Protection. He has extensive and varied experience in the areas of environmental management and the program/project management and construction of water protection and treatment facilities. Prior to that, he worked several years in transportation and construction engineering, also for NYC. Eric recently was site manager for the rehabilitation of Port-au-Prince’s airport terminal which was extensively damaged in the 2010 earthquake. The site construction occurred 24 hours a day so that its reopening could be accomplished under a very tight deadline.

He served as both President and Vice President of the Association of Haitian and American Engineers (ADIHA). Eric grew up in Saint-Marc Haiti and owned a business there for nearly a decade in the 1980’s. He  is living in his hometown of Saint-Marc and will be working on water development projects for governments, multi-laterals, private clients and NGOs.

Eric’s first languages are French and Haitian Creole.
