Water Resources Engineer
Hydraulic/Hydrology/Water Resources Engineers redirect water to benefit residents and businesses in a community. They get involved with the construction of canals, dam building, and the design of water pipelines. Water resource engineers can also oversee projects designed to protect the environment. Examples include working on complex soil drainage systems that prevent new developments from negatively impacting existing communities downstream. These engineers can also help water conservation efforts by installing rainwater collection systems for irrigation and grounds-keeping purposes.
