Professional Water Resources Engineer

Salary: Commensurate with experience

POSITION DESCRIPTION

We are seeking a professional water resources engineer for a wide range of projects, such as wetland and stream restoration; aquatic species passage projects; forest road and trail closures, reroutes, or development; post-fire/flood emergency response; water quality BMP projects; etc.  

Our office is located in Lake George, CO, (about one hour west of Colorado Springs and two hours southwest of the Denver Metro area in the mountains), though the individual may telecommute a significant portion of the time. The individual should generally like to travel as we have projects spread out across a wide area of Colorado, and may have out of state projects in the future. 

We seek an engineer with excellent interpersonal and communication skills. The ideal candidate would be a hands-on person with a common-sense approach to day to day problem solving. He or she will work both at direct engineering and supervising project implementation, as well as overseeing external consultant teams.   Responsibilities range from preliminary planning and plans of operation, to collection of field data, modeling, report writing, reviewing project designs and specifications, overseeing contractors, and finalizing project as-builts. Understanding of required permits, such as 404 and flood plain permitting, is essential.

The position will work closely with external partners, such as area major water providers, counties, state agencies and federal agencies (particularly the US Forest Service, or the Natural Resources Conservation Service).

Minimum Qualifications

  • An engineering degree from an accredited engineering college and a PE license in Colorado (or the ability to sit for the Colorado test at its next cycle if the engineer has a PE in another state).
  • Strong work ethic.
  • You must have a valid driver’s license and suitable driving record for our consideration. 
  • Good knowledge of basic office software, CAD, GIS, and other similar software (and associated devices); strong understanding of hydrologic and hydraulic modeling software, such as HEC-RAS/HEC-HMS/TR-55, Geo- RAS, Hydraflow, HydroCAD, and/or similar software
  • A holistic approach to natural resource projects that marries best engineering practices with a strong appreciation of ecosystems and ecological principals.
