Published in Alaska Business: What about the water?

Hydrological environmental engineering is in high demand across the Last Frontier

 

Nearly all the work conducted by hydrological environmental engineers, from wetlands delineation and mapping to stream surveys and stormwater management, is dictated by the Clean Water Act. “It is hard to develop a project in Alaska without impacting wetlands and waters. In addition, anadromous streams and lakes are found throughout the state, providing essential fish habitat,” says Victor Ross, a senior regulatory specialist based in Wasilla. 

Ross and Steve Reidsma, a senior wetland scientist based in Fairbanks, talk about environmental work taking place in Alaska in this Alaska Business article.
