I worked with and shadowed multiple civil engineers who work with water distribution and waste management. I utilized their geographical information system to map out United Water’s services. Then, I was able to determine if road work by other organizations could be done without interfering the water company’s pipes. In addition, I was able to observe some fieldwork, and learned the procedure that goes into these jobs.
