Position:
Forest and Fish Hydrogeologist (Hydrologist 3)

Description:  

Protecting Washington State's environment for current and future generations is what we do every day at Ecology. We have a culture that is invested in making a difference. If you want to join a team that is highly effective, collaborative, has leadership that embraces the value of people, Ecology is a good fit.

The Water Quality Program
 is looking to hire a Forest and Fish Hydrogeologist to protect water quality in our state's forests. Over the past decades, historic forest practices have led to many environmental problems, including increased sediment in streams and landslides. This position will be working to adaptively manage our statewide and site-specific approaches to these and other forest practice issues.

We are looking for applicants who want to work outdoors and in the woods, can cooperatively solve problems with landowners and other agencies, and who understand unstable slopes related to forest practices.

As an agency, our mission is to protect, preserve and enhance Washington's environment for current and future generations. We invest in our employees to create and sustain a working environment that encourages creative leadership, effective resource management, teamwork, professionalism and accountability.

 

Agency Mission: The mission of the Department of Ecology is to protect, preserve and enhance Washington's environment, for current and future generations.

Program Mission: The mission of the Water Quality Program is to protect and restore Washington's waters to support healthy watersheds and communities. Our work ensures state waters can support beneficial uses including recreational and business activities, supplies for clean drinking water, and the protection of fish, shellfish, wildlife, and public health.
 
What does the Forest and Fish Hydrogeologist do?

·         Evaluate proposed forest practice activities to determine if they will protect water quality

·         Work with landowners, tribes, and other state agencies to implement forestry rules

·         Provide hydrogeology and engineering geology consultation

Why join the team?

This position provides a unique opportunity for someone who enjoys all aspects of environmental work: spending time in the field solving site-specific problems, working collaboratively with other stakeholders, being part of Ecology's nine-person forestry team, and applying hydrogeology and engineering geology expertise.

There are nine dedicated people at Ecology statewide who work to protect water quality in our state's forests. This small team works with professional staff at the Department of Natural Resources, the Department of Fish and Wildlife, and tribes to protect the environment. 

Are you up for the challenge?
This position involves extensive field work, including hiking many miles off-trail in difficult terrain.
