Engineering Department

The Engineering Department is headed by the Principal Engineer of Engineering.  Like the Principal Engineer of Operations, the Principal Engineer of Engineering also provides technical and policy advice to the U.S. Commissioner.  The Engineering Department provides engineering and environmental support for all USIWBC operations, and administers the engineering services, environmental management, and geographic information system functions.  The Engineering Department conducts and reviews environmental impact studies, water quality monitoring, hydraulic studies, geotechnical investigations, and develops design plans and specifications for construction and renovation of buildings, hydraulic and flood control structures, hydroelectric power plant infrastructure, and wastewater treatment plant infrastructure.  In addition the Engineering Department is responsible for coordination with Mexican Section personnel on proposed projects which are affected by the stipulations of the 1970 Boundary Treaty.
