Jennifer also completed a walkthrough inspection of a commercial/residential development project in Warrenville focusing on erosion and sediment control onsite. Our environmental engineers discussed the importance of tying together abiotic/non-environmental projects with biological systems for water quality and natural habitat improvement, some benefits of native stormwater systems versus older styles of basin construction (concrete/turf), and the benefits realized by native systems.
In addition, Jennifer learned about what is involved in our Parks and Recreation group projects. Our engineers showed her some example plan sets and explained the services we provide including geometry, grading, and utilities. Important project tasks including permitting, storm sewer and detention design, wetlands, and floodplains were also discussed.
We enjoyed having Jennifer on board with us for a week of job shadowing. Good Luck at Purdue this year!
