Aguirre & Fields, a leading engineering company in Texas and Oklahoma, is pleased to announce Cyndi Carle, P.E., CFM as the director of water resources.
“As director of water resources, and starting a new service line, I plan to organize and grow people within each of our offices to eventually develop their own water resources teams that can better service communities where we live and work,” says Carle.
“Cyndi has been a long-time friend of the firm, and we’ve worked with her as a teaming partner for over 20 years,” says President Dave Lubitz, P.E. “We are very excited to bring her capabilities in-house to provide water resources services to the communities we serve.”
Carle is a graduate of Texas A&M University-Kingsville with 24 years of experience in transportation, specializing in surface water hydrology and hydraulics.
She served as PM for the South Drainage Elements of the 610W/US 59S Interchange in Houston, has worked on over 200 bridge replacements across the state of Texas (as part of the national bridge replacement program), and served as the assistant PM for the bridge hydrology/hydraulics design and scour analysis of College Street at San Gabriel River in Georgetown (a project in which Aguirre & Fields received an ACEC Engineering Excellence Award).
Her expertise includes drainage structure design, bridge, culvert, storm drain system, detention pond sizing, hydrologic and hydraulic computer modeling, drainage mitigation analysis, scour analysis, pump station design, and drainage criteria policies and manuals.
Carle shares Aguirre & Fields vision of driving innovation to effectively serve communities throughout Oklahoma and Texas and considers this new service line critical in doing so.
“Water resources is one of the most important things a community can plan for,” says Carle. “As areas grow and develop, you get more impervious cover and more people traveling your roadways. So, if you’re not looking at the potential for flood damage or the level of service of your roadway during a rain event, it could cause massive issues in the future. Implementing effective water resources design in our projects will benefit all our communities, as we work with them to keep residents and travelers safe and dry.”
