Kicking off 2020 with a new title, WRECO senior engineers, Jennifer Abrams and Lesley Brooks, were promoted to Associates in appreciation of their dedication, technical skill, and leadership at WRECO.
Ms. Abrams has been with WRECO for the duration of her 12-year career specializing in stormwater management, hydrology, and hydraulics. She routinely develops complex hydraulic and hydrologic models, performs drainage and stormwater treatment best management practice (BMP) design, and prepares a range of studies and reports for stormwater and hydraulics (Stormwater Data Reports, Location and Design Hydraulic Studies, drainage reports, etc.). Ms. Abrams also performs climate change modeling/studies and sea-level rise inundation studies – a critical issue in today’s environmental climate – for projects like the developing Gateway Park Project at the San Francisco-Oakland Bay Bridge and the Surfer’s Beach Shoreline Protection Project along Highway 1 in San Mateo County.
Ms. Brooks has been with WRECO for two of her 13 years in the fields of hydrology, hydraulics, and stormwater management. In addition to being a certified civil engineer, Ms. Brooks is also an Envision Sustainability Professional and Certified Floodplain Manager. While at WRECO, she has been a valuable contributor and leader on a wide range of projects including watershed studies, rail projects, master plans, pipe and channel design, policy development, and low-impact development projects. In her work, Ms. Brooks has gained extensive knowledge of complex hydrologic and hydraulic systems and proficiency in a number of hydrologic and hydraulic modeling software programs.
We look forward to more outstanding contributions to the WRECO team in your new role! Congratulations!
