Job Description Summary

Professional Engineers in the Regional Water Project Development Division (RWPD) of the office of Water Supply and Infrastructure play an essential role in advancing the Texas Water Development Board’s (TWDB) mission by providing financial assistance for the conservation and responsible development of water for Texas. Projects financed by the TWDB range from small grants to large-scale regional projects, including one of the largest water infrastructure projects currently underway in the country. Engineers in RWPD perform routine to moderately complex (journey-level) technical analysis and engineering evaluation of reports, facility plans, construction plans and specifications, construction schedules, contracts, change orders and other required project and program documents associated with TWDB-funded water, wastewater, and flood-related infrastructure projects. RWPD staff are responsible for working with stakeholders to ensure that TWDB financial assistance projects comply with Board rules and design criteria. RWPD staff make recommendations on eligibility for funding and project approval for a variety of funding programs that have provided nearly $32 billion in state and federal financial assistance to communities since 1957. RWPD engineering staff ensure that borrowers’ projects comply with all engineering and construction related program requirements and that project files are accurate and complete and represent the agency when working with local communities. Staff in this position may provide guidance to others, work under general supervision, with limited latitude for the use of initiative and independent judgment. Reports to the Regional Team Manager of RWPD Team 4.
