MKN was founded by Michael K. Nunley.  Mike’s extensive experience as a project manager and ultimately as a senior operations manager and Vice President for a Fortune 500 consulting engineering firm became the foundation for MKN & Associates.  The firm is dedicated to providing forward-thinking, cost-effective solutions to water resource challenges in California’s coastal and inland communities.

Today, MKN is a growing team of professional engineers and planners with experience performing major potable water, wastewater, biosolids, and recycled water projects throughout California, Hawaii, and the Pacific Region. The team has excelled in navigating clients’ projects through the most complicated regulatory settings in the United States.
