Work with a Purpose

Alyssa, Assistant Engineer, monitors water quality at Sharon Woods Park in Sharonville (OH).

Hazen has been a proud sponsor and participant in the ACE program to mentor and inspire high school students to pursue careers in engineering since 2010. In New York City, Hazen mentors presented on environmental engineering and our work. Students enjoyed making edible bioswales, learned about wastewater treatment plants and permitting requirements for environmental projects in NYC, and experimented with pervious pavements.

In North Carolina, we co-sponsored and staffed a charity 5K fun run/walk to benefit the North Carolina chapter of Water for People.

Taylor, Assistant Engineer, and Orlando, Principal Engineer, inspect the bottom of a 100’ deep shaft at the Government Cut Project in Miami (FL).

Eleana and Laura, Assistant Engineers, represented Hazen and Sawyer at a STEM fair and career expo for middle school students in New York City.

Hazen staff organized and managed a Model Water Tower Competition for NC-AWWA WEA Raleigh, where elementary and middle school students designed functioning water towers.

Ying, Principal Scientist, monitors a pilot test in Glendale (CA) while researching hexavalent chromium treatment options.

Eileen, Senior Associate, conducts a demonstration for elementary school students to foster early interest in engineering.

Eddie, Assistant Engineer, traveled to Bolivia to monitor water quality and train staff in sampling and analysis techniques.

Paul, Vice President, and Norman, Senior Principal Engineer, examine the bacteria living in a wastewater treatment plant to determine possible process improvements.

Brian, Principal Engineer, traveled to Guatemala to examine drinking water and sanitation projects and provide recommendations.

Calvin, Senior Associate, Matthew, Engineer, and Sandeep, Vice President, discuss urban green infrastructure plans.

Ian, Senior Associate, traveled to France to test a control valve capable of handling 170 million gallons per day - more than most whole cities require.

Since the Conner Creek CSO Control Facility went into operation, the surrounding natural habitat has flourished - best evidenced by the return of beavers to the Detroit River after a 75-year absence (captured here by a DTE Energy motion-sensitive camera).

As environmental engineers and scientists, we have a deep respect for public health, ecology, and the quality of life of our neighbors, both locally and around the globe. As such, we strive to provide our clients with the best, most responsible work possible: work that ensures clean, safe drinking water; sensible wastewater management; durable, sustainable infrastructure; energy- and resource-efficient facilities – the foundation for a prosperous world.

Beyond our work for our clients, we also participate in a wide range of activities that advance the science of water engineering and help improve living conditions in communities around the world. Whether with Engineers Without Borders or Water for People, or for any number of prominent research foundations, the opportunities to learn and grow while you contribute and achieve are plentiful and span the globe.
