During my professional career I have developed experience as a multi-disciplined project engineer with many years of design experience. My extensive experience has been in all aspects of site and municipal utilities engineering, including sanitary sewer collection and treatment, sewage lift stations and force mains, water distribution system and R/O treatment plant design, street design and storm drainage including both public and private projects. My scope of experience ranges from the development of a solid budget, client interface, preparation and selection of a team for a project, initial project planning, site investigation, document research, supervising of field surveys and analysis of the collected data, property investigation and acquisition, water and sewer utilities design, site and facility design, plan/profile preparation, technical specifications, material takeoffs and cost estimates, obtaining all permits, bidding document preparation, achievement of deadlines and deliverables, advertising and administering bid openings, checking all shop drawings, field inspections, implementation of change orders, to preparing as-built drawings and final project closeout. I am also experienced in the acquisition of various permits required by various State and Federal Agencies including NCDENR, Land Quality, CAMA, Corps of Engineers, NCDOT, and funding through Rural Development, the Rural Center, and CDBG Programs. I have extensive experience with University infrastructure work, including steam lines, chilled water lines, and electric/communication duct banks projects involving the NC State Construction Office. I also have experience with Civil / Site work in both residential and commercial development projects. I have recently completed the Stormwater BMP Inspection & Maintenance Certification class and test presented by the NCSU / NCA&TSU Co-op and the NCSU Bio & Ag Engineering Department, and I obtained my certification as a Stormwater BMP Inspector (Certification # 1367). I also have a Professional Engineer’s license in VA I am fortunate to have been involved in expediting projects in a multi-disciplined engineering environment with diverse and complicated design requirements which ranged from intensive short schedules or tight budgetary constraints to complex phasing to ensure the project allows adjacent utilities to remain functional during construction. This design experience has been instrumental in the successful development and completion of many various municipal utility and private development projects of varying scope and complexity. I have experience with small communities up to cities such as Raleigh, county utility systems along with large and small private development projects. All of this is detailed in my resume Appendix following. I have been operating as self-employed since the summer of 2009, and I am interested in rejoining the workforce with the right opportunity, or would be at least interested in contract work.

Projects during self-employment 06/09 to Present

Winston Ridge Subdivision, Franklin County, NC - Project Engineer for the Winston Ridge Subdivision, which is a 527-lot, multi-phase subdivision outside of Youngsville, NC. The project encompasses full design of all site features, including streets, storm drainage, water and sewer utilities, along with coordination with other utilities such as electric, phone, cable, gas, etc. One of the largest challenges of the subdivision was its location – on the ridgeline between the Neuse River and the Tar-Pamlico River basins. This created an aggravating water pressure issue in that area of the County where the County supplied adequate fire flow but inadequate residential pressures. We performed a complete WaterCAD analysis on the area and presented the County a report with multiple scenarios and alternatives to determine the most cost effective solution, which was to install a booster pump station at one end of the area and a pressure control valve at the other to create a separate pressure zone. Phase 2 of the subdivision is under construction, and we are now continuing with Phase 3 design and permitting. Town of Eastover Stormwater Improvements Study and Stormwater Regulations Development, Eastover, NC – Managing Project Engineer, teaming with Anderson & Associates, Inc., to perform an overall stormwater study, specific area studies and development of stormwater regulations for the town and to assist in planning, design, and upcoming permitting / construction administration of various stormwater improvements, especially for the downtown district. This project is still underway and is to expand into further area studies and the design and installation of stormwater improvements in the Town.

Faith Baptist Church Teen Center Site Improvements, Knightdale, NC - Project Engineer for the civil engineering and surveying services to assist in planning, design, and permitting / construction administration of various necessary tasks to obtain a site plan approval from the Town of Knightdale for Faith Baptist Church’s accessory building adjacent to their existing facilities to convert to a ‘youth center’ for teens of the church to have a meeting place, assembly area and classrooms. FBC has acquired the services of LEA to produce a Site Plan submittal and obtain subsequent approval of the said site plan from the Town of Knightdale, NC, and subsequent permits / actions with Wake County and NCDOT.

City of Raleigh Public Utilities Department (CORPUD), Raleigh, NC – I was chosen to assist the City with small sewer extension projects. Some of the sewer extension projects to date are: N. Allen Road, Wake Forest, NC - Approximately 300’ of new sewer was extended in a new easement near the back property line of five residences previously served by a 6” lateral running just behind the buildings to the existing infrastructure. These five residences were tied in to a new 8” gravity line; a new manhole was set at the limits of the run deep enough to accommodate the sewer flows from the residences. New laterals were extended to the new 8” PVC line to tie in the subject properties. A section of the existing 6” lateral passed through an exposed portion of a storm drainage channel, and the buried storm pipe is exposed at that point to allow the lateral to pass between the open sections. The existing lateral was removed from the area of the crossing, abandoning the remaining lateral sections in place. Storm drainage improvements included a new junction box constructed at the separation of the two buried storm pipes to correct the deficiency. S. Allen Road, Wake Forest, NC - Approximately 330’ of new sewer was extended up S. Allen Rd. to provide new 8” gravity service to three homes previously served by a 4” lateral running through the rear of the subject properties. A new manhole was set at the limits of the run, deep enough to accommodate the depth of existing service to the last residence. 8” gravity sewer was installed to tie into an existing manhole located just north of Elm Av. Laterals were extended to the sewer line to accommodate tie-ins of the three residences. The existing manhole required coring and a re-construction of the bench to facilitate the new flows. The existing 4” lateral at the rear of the properties was cut off and capped in such a manner to retain service to 658 Wait Ave, and the remainder of the line abandoned in place.

W. Juniper Street, Wake Forest, NC - The homes on W Juniper sit 12’ to 16’ below the existing roadway grade. The options to provide sewer service to the residences were either A) grinder pumps located at each residence and pumped up to the existing sewer in W Juniper, B) significantly lowering the sewer line in W Juniper to accommodate gravity flow from the houses (unlikely due to excessive rock) or C) new gravity sewer service along the rear of the properties to tie in to existing gravity infrastructure on Rock Spring Rd. Approximately 600’ feet of new sewer service was extended along a new easement along the rear property line to provide service to the 4 properties along W Juniper Av. The new line is running through a protected buffer area with a perennial stream, and required special permitting for approval by DENR. N. Main Street, Wendell, NC - Approximately 100’ of new sewer was added to provide an 8” gravity line to the existing infrastructure flowing east-west on Academy St. A new manhole was placed in the street at the location of the deficient property and a shallow run of 8” PVC gravity sewer was installed to reach the east-west run of existing 8” sewer service on W Academy St. Though there was no visual evidence to indicate a structure at the intersection of N Main and W Academy, investigation has determined a manhole existed beneath the newly laid asphalt, and a tie-in to the existing infrastructure was made at that point. Existing service lateral was abandoned in place.

EPCO Condensate Pump Station and Force Main, Apex, NC - Project Engineer for this Design-Build project for EPCO. The Environmental Products Company (EPCO) owns and operates a propane gas pipeline that runs from Mont Belvieu, Texas to Apex, North Carolina, site of a storage and transport facility. This pipeline is a major source of propane supplied to the southeastern United States. During the coldest months of the year, a unit on site is kept in constant operation that heats the product, resulting in a ‘condensate’ (approximately 2000 gallons per day) that was collected and transported offsite. Caustic is added to the low PH condensate to bring the PH within acceptable levels for discharge as agreed upon with the Town of Apex. Mr. Lamm designed a lift station to capture this condensate and with submersible pumps and a 2” force main would transport the fluid to the Town wastewater treatment plant adjacent to the Dixie site. Due to safety regulations concerning working around the gas lines, we were very limited to the allowable equipment we could use. Most of the excavation was performed by hand or vacuum excavation, which was very time consuming. The pump station structure was an 8’ x 8’, two-piece precast box with submersible pumps. The station is fully operational and functioning as designed. Old North Utilities Services / Fort Bragg – 6” Water Line Relocation Project, Fort Bragg, NC – This project was for the relocation of an existing water service line on base to make room for the new Mission Command Center, along with providing new water and fire service lines and sanitary sewer to the new building. Broad Street Sewer Extension, Durham, NC – This project was for a private developer that had a property in Durham with a failed septic system and the only lot in the area not served by public sewer. It meant the sewer extension to the property from the nearest manhole had to cross another property behind the existing Broad Street right-of-way because there was no room in the right-of-way. It is currently in the City for permitting. Hyde County / NCDOT – Creekside Drive 6” Water Line Relocation Project, Swan Quarter, NC - This project incorporated approximately 4000 linear feet of 6” water line that is in a gravel road that was relocated out from under the proposed pavement that NCDOT is to install.

OWASA - Barclay Road 6” Water Line Replacement Project, Carrboro, NC - This featured project completed ahead of schedule was the Barclay Road 6” Water Line Replacement Project for OWASA. We executed the contract in early January, which was 75% complete by the first of February, completed the design plans and contract documents in March, reviewed and permitted, advertised and received bids on April 30. Construction is complete. We have received extremely high marks for evaluation of our services. OWASA - Arboretum Drive 8” Water Line Replacement Project, Chapel Hill, NC - This project was the Arboretum Drive 8” Water Line Replacement Project for OWASA. We executed the contract in early April, and completed the design plans and contract documents in July, NCDOT reviewed and permitted, and OWASA advertised and received bids in October. Construction is now complete. Permitting was delayed due to the fact that Arboretum Drive is a NCDOT road, and there were isolation valve issues in the existing lines that had to be resolved, because it affected the NCDOT and PWS permitting. We have received extremely high marks for evaluation of our services for OWASA. Hyde County Solid Waste Convenience Site, Ocracoke, NC - Project Engineer for the renovation of the Ocracoke Solid Waste Convenience Site to accommodate additional compactors, collection bins, and other improvements. This project had a very short timetable for completion. We began our contract the first of May, and the site was to be complete by June 30. Allowing a month for construction, we expedited our survey and design within two weeks, with the electrical following the third week. We delivered the completed documents by hand to the Public Works Director on May 26, so he could get the contractors on the job. Wake Chapel Church BMP Repair and Re-Certification, Raleigh, NC - Project Engineer for the inspection, repair and re-certification of the church facilities’ two stormwater retention ponds (BMPs). We conducted a full engineering inspection of the ponds per the local ordinance and issued a draft report of the findings. We met with the Owner to review the deficiencies and generate a specification and scope of work outlining the specific repairs needed. Once the scope was approved, we performed the necessary repairs. Once the repairs were completed we conducted the final inspection and issued the final engineering report of a successful inspection to the local authorities (City of Raleigh).

Numerous Stormwater BMP Facilities Design, Inspection and Annual Certification – I am a certified BMP Inspector and have performed many annual re-certifications on different styles of BMPs in Wake County including dry ponds, wet ponds, bioretention ponds, buried storage pipes, sand filters, etc. I have also designed and permitted a bioretention facility. One recent HOA that I inspected their two dry detention ponds found that the developer had grossly undersized the constructed ponds from what was permitted with the City. This led the City to force the original developer to go back and construct the ponds as they were permitted. In attempting to do this, one of the ponds had dimension requirements that exceeded the lot that it was placed on. Houses were built on either side which made it impossible to expand. The City and the developer (and HOA) had to agree upon a compromise-sized pond that may not handle all storms as originally planned.
