Kevin has 20 years experience working on watersheds projects at all levels.
He has a bachelor of science in Environmental Science and a master of science in civil engineering with a focus on hydrology and hydraulics. He has experience working on watershed and river projects in urban and rural settings.

Checking design elevations with GPS. I am in the yellow hard hat.
