Main Purpose and Function
The Integrated Sewer and Drainage Planning Branch provides sewer and drainage planning, modelling and monitoring expertise to the Urban Watersheds, Sewers and Drainage division, and other City departments. The City’s approach to holistic and integrated water management is evolving, but the vision is to embrace and value all forms of water and our natural system as a foundation for our work. Our team’s approach to achieving the vision is to focus on developing an understanding of the current system operation, defining the broader project objectives (e.g., water quality, climate resiliency), and identifying the combination of solutions (e.g. green rainwater infrastructure, pipe upgrades) to meet these objectives.
Reporting to the Senior Engineer in the Integrated Sewer and Drainage Planning Branch, the Sewer and Drainage Planning Engineer provides planning, modelling and data analyses to advance integrated wastewater, drainage, green infrastructure, and flood planning.
This position will work with a number of internal City departments, including Sewer and Drainage Design, Green Infrastructure and Sewer Operations, and will be responsible for completing technical analyses to verify and assess system performance for systems comprised of combined, sanitary and drainage networks, pump stations, green infrastructure, outfalls, and overland flood hazards.
