Interdisciplinary Water Resources seminar
Speaker: Sue Morea
Lecture Title: "Career Opportunities at CDM"
Speaker Bio: Sue Morea is a Senior Vice President with CDM and the firm’s water resources Technical Services Manager for the western United States. She has a B.A. in biology from the University of Colorado and an M.S. in environmental engineering from Colorado State University. Sue has more than 23 years of experience and has been involved in the analysis and planning of a broad range of projects for federal, state, municipal, and private clients.
As CDM's Project Director for the Statewide Water Supply Initiative, she is responsible for helping guide the technical roundtables of state water, agriculture, and environmental interests toward developing solutions for meeting Colorado’s water supply needs. Sue is also leading several integrated water resources planning projects in the West, and numerous water quality studies nationwide. Lecture Abstract: Water resources management involves stewardship of the natural resources that support clean water and watersheds — our aquifers, streams, rivers, lakes, and estuaries — as well as controlling water’s flow through urban and suburban neighborhoods and agricultural areas. Ultimately, water resources management is total resource management, addressing all components of the water cycle in an integrated fashion. For over 60 years, CDM has provided hundreds of clients with innovative and sustainable water resources solutions for safeguarding water supplies, restoring urban environments, and improving quality of life. This lecture will provide an overview of CDM’s core services for the following water resources markets, and will focus on the skills required for a successful career in this field:
Water Supply: planning, management, and development of surface and groundwater supplies for public, industrial, and agricultural use.
Water Control: analysis and management of watersheds to prevent flooding and to mitigate the effects of flooding.
Water Quality: meeting goals of the Clean Water Act through sampling, analysis, monitoring, permitting, and mitigation.
Wet Weather Overflows: preventing and mitigating the impacts of combined sewer overflows.
Habitat / Ecosystem Preservation and Restoration: providing services for multi-objective river and stream restoration goals.
