Job Opportunities

Our group is made up of folks from environmental, geotechnical, and civil backgrounds. The group includes engineers, product suppliers, regulatory agencies, municipal government representatives, and contractors. There are no dues or officers.

The group was formed in January 2004 with the goal of meeting twice a month during the lunch hour (“Brown Bag sessions”) and listening to an ESC technical presentation. The time can be counted toward the engineer’s PDH credits. The meeting rooms are rotated among TxDOT, TCEQ, the City of Austin, and LCRA meeting rooms that are provided at no cost to the group. The group could not survive without this generous donation. The group includes members of the South Central IECA chapter and encourages membership and participation.


The meetings are intended to be constructive, educational, and relaxed in tone. The spirit of the group is one of open sharing and discussion in a courteous and professional manner. The goal is to cooperatively build upon the experiences of all the members. The brown bag luncheon meetings are held at no charge due to the gracious sponsors that donate meeting room space, cokes, and bottled water. Since the room sponsors are governmental agencies, the content of the meetings cannot take on any semblance of a “political agenda” or grievance session. We cannot afford to lose these generous sponsors. The attendees’ “code of conduct” should support this positive educational environment. Attendees should not be combative or hostile with the guest speaker. Attendees should allow time for others in the group to ask questions. Extended technical discussions with the speaker should be held after the brown bag session. This venue should be a safe environment for the speakers who are taking time to take a risk and get in front of a professional group of peers to review a particular product, case study, or regulatory issue. These general “rules of the road” are suggested to help keep the meetings constructive, educational, and relaxed in tone.

The EWRI Austin Chapter held its 13th annual continuing education workshop on Friday, June 15, 2022, at the UT Austin Commons Learning Center, located on the J.J. Pickle Research Campus. The theme was The Confluence of Water Resources Disciplines, and the event focused on multi-discipline design for water resources projects. Presentations were given by local and national landscape architects, ecologists, civil engineers, and other scientists. Topics ranged from aquifer protection and LID design to the latest research in the water resources field. As always, we encourage all water resources professionals to attend training opportunities such as this so we can learn from each other’s disciplines and continue to collaborate.

Baer Engineering has immediate openings in Austin and San Antonio for highly-motivated environmental professionals with experience in Texas. Applicants must possess excellent project organization and writing skills. Please see for the job postings.

Please remember that our meetings can be counted as 1.0 PDH credit toward annual PE and other associations’ annual requirements (honor system). I can provide you with a copy of the attendance sheet with your initials, but you need to keep the list of when you attended and let me know the dates. Teamwork.

Thank you to COA, TCEQ, and TxDOT for donating free meeting room space over 14 years so we can have these technical meetings.

And thank you to everyone for taking time from your work to attend these Brown Bag sessions.
