At Storm Water Services, engineers handle many complex tasks while working on projects. Here are just a few:

  • Conduct field visits 
  • Coordinate with surveyors, utility companies and property owners during projects
  • Meet with property owners 
  • Collaborate with other employees to implement improvements 

We asked some of our Storm Water Services engineers what they enjoy most about their work. 

Jermaine Jackson, a licensed professional engineer with City of Charlotte Storm Water Services, enjoys working with a multitude of stakeholders on a variety of unique projects to improve our community. He also enjoys networking with members of the American Society of Civil Engineers to learn new skills.

David Woodie, a licensed professional engineer with Mecklenburg County Storm Water Services, enjoyed working on both the Stevens Creek and McDowell Creek stream restoration projects. These projects are just two examples of how Storm Water Services is working to improve the overall health of our streams to provide habitat for aquatic life.
