Industry remembers Walter Casey
Casey, who began his career in 1954, founded Walt Casey Water Conditioning (later known as Walt Casey’s Culligan), one of the largest water treatment firms in Nevada. A well-known dealer of POU/POE systems, he also developed commercial applications for reverse osmosis, obtaining several patents for his devices.
Casey was a 1980 recipient of the Water Quality Association’s (WQA) Regents Award and a 1997 recipient of the WQA’s Hall of Fame award. He served on the Water Quality Research Foundation (WQRF) Board of Directors, the WQA Board of Directors, membership, marketing and nominating committee and reverse osmosis task force. He was also a founding board member of the Boys & Girls Club of Las Vegas and served as Vice Chairman of the Colorado River Commission.
