Cool...another CE!

I'm also a civil engineer; my specialty is water stuff.

Advice...well, I got a call from a headhunter the other day who told me wastewater is the future. He said he just can't find enough wastewater engineers. Which leads me to...

...stories...I was on a cruise once, and someone asked what I did for a living. I told them I was a civil engineer. She then said, "Oh, you don't design wastewater treatment plants, do you?" (no--I worked for a municipal [drinking] water utility at the time. Now I am in wastewater, though in review, permitting, and compliance, not design).

But most of my good stories come from my days as a geology major...

Ellen, P.E.
