Water Engineer

Water Engineers are engineers who specialize in water-based projects, including maintenance of water containment structures, disposal of wastewater, and mitigating flood damage. They design water systems, present technical data, review technical plans and submissions, and supervise the operation and maintenance of water and sewage infrastructure. Water Engineers also prepare water resource models, ensure that projects are abiding by all safety standards, and gather data. Water Engineers must be aware of new environmental laws and regulations, and also must be able to break down complex technical jargon for non-technical colleagues and clients.
