The County of Riverside's Flood Control District has multiple opportunities for Associate Civil Engineers that will be assigned to multiple divisions located in Riverside.

The Engineers will under minimal direction, perform varied and difficult flood control engineering work in one or more of the District’s engineering divisions, which span from Planning, Design, Construction, Operation and Maintenance of Stormwater Management facilities. Candidates may also supervise or train lower classifications within these roles.

The District desires candidates that have experience with the planning, design, and construction of projects such as:  

  1. Flood control facilities including storm drains, channels, basins, dams and levees.
  2. Stormwater recharge facilities such as groundwater / infiltration basins.
  3. Stormwater treatment facilities such as infiltration basins, biotreatment, bioretention,
  4. Experience planning, designing and constructing highways, freeways, sanitary sewers and/or landfills, may also be considered.

In addition the District desires candidates that have performed engineering studies / analyses related to the above types of projects/facilities.  As well as experience with the detailed review (plan check) and approval of engineering studies and plans related to the above types of projects/facilities.

Candidates with experience leading and organizing teams of people involved in the planning, design, review and approval of public works projects.  Have direct experience performing (preferred) or reviewing hydrology studies, hydraulic analyses, floodplain analysis, structural design, plan/drawing preparation, specification writing, bid document writing, construction contract administration, and/or inspection of public works facilities. Have knowledge and use of various engineering software including HEC-RAS, HEC-HMS, WSPG, Inroads, AutoCAD, CivilD, Flo-2D, or other Hydraulic, Hydrologic, Structural design software are highly encouraged to apply.
