The individual sought for this position will perform a variety of advanced engineering analyses and provide technical support to water projects, water management, and water rights issues.

Under the supervision of the Regional Manager, this position is responsible for providing a broad variety of advanced engineering analysis and technical duties for all programs within the DNRC Water Resources Division. The employee will provide engineering and hydrologic information/services to DNRC staff and the public for the purpose of establishing water policies and guidance, to resolve water management issues, and to support the Dam Safety, Floodplain Administration, and State Water Project programs. This may include new management strategies, policies, laws and rules, and operational or infrastructure changes.

DNRC regional engineering duties largely incorporate the use of civil engineering practices with an emphasis on site design and site development. The incumbent may perform the engineering analysis and evaluation of the permits needed for Dam Safety regulation, Floodplain Administration, and Water Rights management. The individual may work with the Department in the preparation of evidence and provide expert testimony in water right contested case hearings or litigation involving engineering designs for public safety, water resource management and other engineering related functions. This person researches, gathers, and analyzes water resource information and makes recommendations regarding water use, availability, and improved management practices.

The incumbent also serves as the liaison between the State Water Projects Bureau and the private Water Users Associations that are responsible for operation and maintenance activities on the state owned dams within the Helena region. This includes conducting annual dam safety inspections, providing field support and technical assistance to implement project maintenance and repair items, and attending Water User annual meetings.

Because the employee will need to collect surface water, ground water, and water quality data, support implementation of the Dam Safety program, and conduct floodplain technical reviews, an applicant must be willing to work in the field and be familiar with a variety of data collection techniques and the instruments used to collect this data. Additional duties include serving as the primary liaison performing education and outreach to community floodplain administrators, dam owners, stakeholders, and others within the region.
