The Engineer will provide technical guidance to help manage the flood risk reduction system including construction, engineering, operations, and maintenance in the district as required for continued improvement of the internal drainage system. This position is member of the MCDD Engineering Team and reports directly to the Chief Engineer.
The primary responsibility of this position is to serve as the District’s expert on internal drainage topics, with a particular emphasis on pump stations. While MCDD does maintain open channels and stormwater culverts as part of its drainage system, the primary assets are its pump stations. These pump stations range in capacity from 13,000 to 272,000 gallons per minute (gpm) with vertical turbine and submersible pumping systems.
The Engineer will lead or support projects and programs related to the internal drainage system. The June 2019 MCDD and PEN2 Drainage Master Plans developed preliminary scopes and cost estimates for much of this work. Respectively, these plans identified $31 million and $16 million of capital and programmatic needs. Additionally, this position will work in partnership with the District’s geotechnical engineer, its Operations Team, and other staff to develop an asset management program that supports ongoing maintenance and capital requirements for the internal drainage and levee systems.
