Job Description: WATER RESOURCES DIVISION: The Division carries out its duties for the purpose of promoting the general welfare and prosperity of the people of Montana. Sound coordination of the development and utilization of the state's waters allows the Division to protect existing uses and to promote adequate future supplies for domestic, industrial, agricultural, recreation, the conservation of water for wildlife, aquatic life and other beneficial uses.

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. The applicant should be proficient in the use of software to solve hydrologic and hydraulic (H&H) problems and should be able to use standard H&H software. Knowledge of GIS software with the ability to produce maps for use in resource analysis, the use of GIS to construct digital map coverage and spatial coordinates and related attribute data, GPS technology, and other computer programs associated with water management is preferred. The applicant must be a good technical writer, as this position will be required to write technical reports, memoranda, and letters. Appearing as a witness at an administrative or court hearing, serving as a mediator in water right disputes and complaints, and attending meetings and providing information regarding Water Resources Division programs are also job duties of this position.
