Currently serving as a hydrologic technician for the USGS Utah Water Science Center collecting, analyzing, and disseminating impartial hydrologic data and information, which is needed to wisely manage water resources for the state of Utah. Major duties include operating an extensive satellite network of stream-gaging stations, which provides the public with real-time information regarding streamflow, water-quality, and groundwater data. Responsibilities include the collection, processing, analysis, dissemination, and archiving of hydrologic data that support the Utah Water Science Center’s mission to increase our understanding of key water-resource issues and to promote informed decision making. Maintenance of statewide data collection networks helps to define natural and human-induced hydrologic conditions in Utah and provides information for flood and water supply forecasts, planning and design, river regulation, streamflow statistics, and water-resource investigations.
