Work History

Jobs We’ve Done

Veteran’s Healthcare System of the Ozarks | Central Arkansas

Before And After


Game & Fish Commission Canoe Slides & Access Structures, Cadron Creek & Poke Bayou, AR

Reviewed stream geometry, hydraulics, and hydrologic data. Provided site visit, GPS coordinates, design & professional engineer certification for structures, canoe slides, access, landing, and foundations at the AGFC access area on Cadron Creek near Quitman and two canoe slides on Poke Bayou in Batesville, Arkansas. Quickly provided the Cadron Creek design in time for combined contractor and AGFC in-house construction for the 2021 floating season to enable safe access while preventing human damage to the natural stream bank environment.



Hawthorne Row Townhome Development, Bentonville, AR

Assessed geotechnical conditions, designed foundations and structural members for the Townhomes.  Provided construction inspections services in coordination the City of Bentonville and the prime architectural firm.



Benton County Regional Solid Waste District, Prairie Creek Park, AR

Provided site selection & low impact development design to manage stormwater runoff at Corps of Engineers Prairie Creek Park on Beaver Lake and provided construction supervision services.  Parking areas and boat ramps are some of the most frequently used areas in the Beaver Lake watershed. Heavy usage of the boat ramps and parking areas has resulted in Non-Point Source loading from spilled or leaked oil, gasoline, and other automotive fluids from vehicles and boats, as well as water drainage from boats.  Properly designed vegetated bioswales can capture storm water and naturally treat pollutants.



Game & Fish Commission (AGFC) Stream Team, Arkansas

Teamed with the AGFC to restore impaired stream segments.  We reviewed stream geometry, hydraulics, and hydrologic data to determine suitable designs.  Provided site visits, stream surveys with GPS coordinates, stream design, & professional engineer certification for permitting with the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers and Arkansas Department of Energy & Environment, Division of Environmental Quality.  Enabled landowners to compete for grants to restore stream banks to protect land and riparian buffer while reestablishing habitat as well as passage for native fish species.



Denton Ferry Road Bridge, Baxter County and NWAEDD | Cotter, AR

Project planning and geotechnical surveying were conducted, resulting in an analysis of stream hydraulics and hydrology. In-stream rock structures were installed to provide passage for fish migrating upstream. The bridge’s civil portion was designed, including approaches, piers, and bents, with project management also supplied.

More of Our Jobs

Law Offices, Intersection of Township & Old Wire Road | Fayetteville, AR

Prepared LID BMP’s for a Large-Scale Development Plan for a law office.  This project, constructed in 2000, is one of the first LID projects in Fayetteville. Office was placed where storm water runoff from the building could be detained using rock and vegetation.  A permeable drive, parking area, and sidewalk was designed to allow for storm water infiltration.  Historical features were incorporated into the design and preserved, rock steps and an old foundation were used in conjunction with vegetated detention. After almost 23 years, the site is in good condition showing the stability and long-term application for LID Best Management Practices.

Water and Energy Resilience Planning, and Energy Resilience Readiness Exercise (ERRE) United States Air Force, Multiple Military Base | The Pentagon, Washington, DC

Provided policy, guidance, system analysis, and site-specific engineering support for the resilience of the water and energy utility systems at several USAF bases, to include Tyndall Air Force Base (AFB), Florida; Malmstrom AFB, Montana; Aviano AFB, Italy; Joint Base McGuire-Dix-Lakehurst, NJ; Joint Base Langley-Eustis, VA; Eielson AFB, Alaska, and; Wright-Patterson AFB, Ohio. Assisted the Deputy Assistant Secretary of the Air Force for Environment, Safety and Infrastructure (SAF/IEE) and MIT-Lincoln Labs in assessing the energy and water infrastructure, analyzing critical missions, physically testing the resilience of the systems, identifying system deficiencies, and recommending solutions. 

Private Residence | Fayetteville, AR

The private family home is adjacent to Mud Creek.  The family wanted to make improvements to their back yard and attempted to obtain a construction permit.  The city of Fayetteville informed them that they were in a streamside protection zone and needed professional assistance in determining if the project was feasible.  It was determined that a bioswale to help protect the stream from runoff would be an effective alternative and would enable the improvements to the family’s property to be constructed.

Viola Public Schools, District #15 | AR

Projects to Come

The Nature Conservancy (TNC) Bridge Design | Washington County, Arkansas

This 2022 Design-Build project with Wahington County is for a 30 foot span bridge crossing a tributary to Clear Creek.   The bridge will take the place of a low water crossing that has had chronic erosion issues. Part of the restoration effort is to redirect the alignment and stream flow of the tributary to protect a spring-fed pond that has the highest concentration of Least Darters in the State of Arkansas. Anticipated construction 2023.

Veterans’ Healthcare System of the Ozarks, Water Tower | Fayetteville AR

A low impact design (LID) bioswale system was prepared for the $8,000,000 Water Tower construction project.  The bioswale will slow and filter runoff (and any overflow) from the water tower & ancillary facilities prior to discharge from the VA property.  Design is 100% complete and will be out for bid and construction in 2023.
