RES is currently accepting applications for a Stream Restoration Designer II (Water Resources Engineer II) with 2-5yrs experience, based out of our Louisville or Frankfort, Kentucky office. The mission: Join a growing, multi-disciplinary, and innovative team of restoration designers and water resource engineers currently working on some of the nation’s largest rivers, streams, and wetland restoration projects. You will have the opportunity to work on projects you design through the entire project’s life cycle. Our designers/engineers are involved from the initial concept/site identification through assessment, design, construction and long-term monitoring allowing our team to understand the full process of stream and wetland restoration projects and apply innovative techniques to future restoration projects. This is a team with a flexible working style, that works collaboratively with teams of ecological restoration specialists to meet client and project needs. What your day-to-day might look like? 50% of your time, you will be designing. The projects we you will focus on are related to stream restoration, wetland restoration, hydraulic and hydrology investigation, and sustainable stormwater management. You will be required to develop and interpret natural resource plans, stream and/or wetland restoration plans, sustainable stormwater design plans, erosion and sediment control plans, and as-built plans under the support of senior staff. You will develop design metrics and parameters into a 3-dimensional design with the Autodesk Civil 3D environment, provide engineering evaluations and calculations, review the design and plans for quality assurance, develop design reports, and develop and deliver floodplain analyses. These deliverables are expected to be performed in a detailed, clear, and concise manner, so be ready to shine with your communication skills during the interview! You will be juggling several projects at the same time so superior attention to detail and ability to prioritize are paramount. 30% of the time, you will help lead the projects and produce technical documentation. You will be coordinating with the local design and implementation teams, collaborating with scientists, land acquisition specialists, regulatory experts and senior design/engineering staff. You will help lead collection and analysis of field data to establish existing conditions, identify potential design constraints, and help determine design parameters. You will also assist with providing construction oversight as needed during project implementation. This involves travel to job sites and occasional overnight stays. Additionally, you will assist preparing technical documentation associated with the restoration design process, including writing proposals, design summaries, mitigation plans, regulatory permit applications, cost/quantity estimates, bid documents, construction specifications, construction oversight reports, and post-construction monitoring reports. We might ask you to produce a writing piece to showcase your communication skills. Around 20% of your time will consist of Fieldwork, where you will be helping lead the geomorphic and ecological site assessments, fulfilling mitigation crediting field protocols, and applied fluvial geomorphic/hydraulic surveys. You will also be visiting our project sites to provide construction oversight and support post-construction monitoring. Finally, you will be assisting with our restoration success monitoring. This involves travel to job sites and occasional overnight stays.
