Matt Hinson, Engineering Sales Representative of Taco Hydroflo Pump Solutions, recently received the Doctor of Water degree from the Southern California Water Utilities Association (SCWUA).

The SCWUA presents the award to members who have skillfully served the water industry in California for 15 years or more. Hinson’s award recognizes his work and service while helping municipalities and water agencies.

“We are so very proud of Matt for the honor bestowed upon him as a Doctor of Water,” said Cheryl Merchant, President and CEO, Taco Family of Companies. “Matt has been an excellent addition to our team and his willingness and ability to mentor and share his experience has made our entire team better, smarter, and stronger.”

SCWUA’s announcement, though significant in its recognition of dedicated service, offers a jovial description. It states that Hinson “has completed the Course of Complaints prescribed by the customers of this industry and having given faithful and distinguished service to the Water Works Profession is therefore admitted to the Degree of Doctor of Water in Southern California.”

Hinson began his career in 1979 at Johnston Pump Company as a service technician/engineer in training (EIT). He moved into the Johnston Pump Geothermal Services division in 1985 where he traveled globally as a field service technician performing services including, notably, installation of geothermal deep well turbine pumps. He also served with the General Pump Company as an applications engineer, then becoming a senior applications engineer/project manager in 2005.

He joined Taco Hydroflo Pump Solutions in 2022. “I love this industry and helping people. Everyone needs water,” concluded Hinson.
