Project Description

Beth Wentzel, PE

Water Resources Engineer

Beth recognized early that she preferred “problem solving rather than memorizing.” Today, she thrives on investigative fieldwork. “I love detective work,” she says. “I like figuring out what a place used to be like and comparing it to what’s going on now.”

With a degree in Civil and Environmental Engineering, she has a solid understanding of river protection laws and regulations. And as a former Peace Corp volunteer teaching math in West Africa, she gained a unique perspective on worldwide water issues.

She landed at Inter-Fluve in 2010, and contributes expertise in hydrologic and hydraulic analysis, stormwater management system design and monitoring, and river and wetland restoration design. “I like the spirit of collaboration here,” she says. “There’s a respect for what everyone brings to the table regardless of their background.”

When work is done, time with family and friends takes priority, with hockey, canoeing, and cross-county skiing filling the hours left in the day.

“I like the spirit of collaboration here,” she says. “There’s a respect for what everyone brings to the table regardless of their background.”
