Environmental or Water Resources Staff Professional

Drummond Carpenter’s Florida practice is expanding, and we are looking for a talented Environmental or Water Resources Staff Professional to join our firm at our Orlando offices. Ideal candidates will have core capabilities needed to provide innovative environmental solutions to assist our municipal, state, and federal clients in areas such as stormwater management, infrastructure design, green infrastructure, water quality studies, ecological studies, flood mitigation strategies, watershed management, environmental permitting, surface water monitoring, and TMDL support.

Drummond Carpenter is a leader in developing solutions to many of our country’s toughest environmental challenges that impact the health and safety of communities and the natural environment.
