  • Perform field inspections, condition assessments, flow/ stream gage installation, and field data collection.
  • Develop and use hydrologic/hydraulic simulation computer models to analyze rainfall/runoff transformations as well as closed conduit, open channel, pump station, reservoir, and floodplain flows.
  • Use GIS software to perform analytical tasks and database updates to support hydrologic and hydraulic studies.
  • Develop watershed and facility maps, technical reports, and presentations.
  • Prepare hydrologic studies and design hydraulic structures.
  • Tabulate and summarize statistical data and assist with the preparation of reports.
  • Support the planning and design of public works improvements and/or private land development improvements by assisting with plan preparation, profiles and cross-sections, and performing various other calculations and drawings.
