Jessica Householder, Ecologist

Ms. Householder is an Ecologist specializing in wetland science, vertebrate ecology, and environmental permitting. She is skilled in conducting wetland delineations, preliminary site evaluations, site characterizations, and habitat assessments. She is experienced in preparing National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) documentation and scoping, Clean Water Act (CWA) Section 401 and 404 permit applications, Jurisdictional Determination requests, Stormwater Pollution Prevention Plans (SWPPP), and National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (NPDES) permit applications.

Mike Lawrence, P.E., CFM, Senior Water Resources Engineer

 

Mr. Lawrence is a Civil Engineer and specializes in the areas of hydrology, hydraulics and floodplain mapping. Over the past 15 years, he has performed many hydraulic studies, including numerous dam breach analyses and flood insurance studies. He is especially experienced utilizing LiDAR based digital elevation models (DEMs) to perform steady and un-steady hydraulic analyses and associated floodplain mapping on complex drainage systems. In addition, he has also performed several stream restoration and channel stabilization designs.

Sarah Parker, P.E., Water Resources Engineer

Ms. Parker is a professional engineer specializing in water resources.  Areas of expertise include, floodplain mapping, bridge and culvert replacement analysis, dam break modeling, and stormwater analysis and planning.  She has extensive experience performing hydrologic calculations and conducting hydraulic analysis using 1D and 2D modeling.  She also has experience creating mapping and reporting products that comply with strict regulatory standards for submission to agencies including FEMA and FERC. 

Dale Vagts, Ecologist; Environmental Scientist

Mr. Vagts is an Ecologist with expertise in wetland biology and environmental science.  He has diverse state, federal, and private consulting experience, resulting in a broad understanding of regulations, land use, and resource management. He has a background in general engineering and project management. He is skilled in wetland delineations, stream assessments, preparation of Clean Water Act Section 404 and Harbors Section 10 permit applications, wetland and stream impact mitigation, violation resolution, compliance monitoring, biological and ecological assessments, and NEPA documentation.

Terry Yergensen, Environmental Services Coordinator; UAS Operations Manager

Mr. Yergensen is an Environmental Services Coordinator, specializing in forecasting environmental/floodplain impacts and securing local, state, and federal permits for various water resources projects.
