Travis Kluthe, P.E., CFM, Water Resources Engineer

 

Mr. Kluthe has experience in hydrology, hydraulics, and physical and computer modeling. Specific project experience over the past 15 years includes the development of a wide range of rainfall-runoff models, detention basin design, storm sewer network analysis and design, erosion protection design and scour analysis, floodplain mapping, sediment transport modeling, dam breach modeling, and river hydraulics.  He has also performed hydrologic and hydraulic analyses, including sizing replacement structures, for numerous bridges.
 

Mike Lawrence, P.E., CFM, 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.

Travis Rounsaville, P.E., CFM, Water Resources Engineer

Mr. Rounsaville is a professional engineer with 15 years of experience in water resources engineering. He has experience with both physical and computer hydraulic modeling, including 2-Dimensional modeling.  His design experience includes natural channel, hydraulic structures, irrigation structures, and scour/erosion protection.  He has extensive floodplain and floodway mapping and permitting experience, including Letters of Map Revision submittals to FEMA, as well as Floodplain Development Permits and No-Rise analysis submittals to local governments. 

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.

Tom Vrieswyk, Field Technician; Drafter

 

Mr. Vrieswyk has 15 years of experience as a surveyor on railroad bridges, culverts, for projects that included hydrology and hydraulics evaluations. He also worked for a major railroad for 7 years as a conductor. He has several years of construction project management and supervisor experience that allow him to see projects with a veteran perspective.

Jason Wilkinson, E.I.T., Water Resources Engineer

 

Mr. Wilkinson is an engineer in training specializing in water resources. He has a variety of experience including hydrologic and hydraulic modeling, stream and outfall restoration, and the support of local government Municipal Separate Storm Sewer (MS4) compliance programs.

Terry Yergensen, Environmental Services Coordinator; UAS Operations Manager
