Wessler is proud to announce Kasey Marley, E.I. as the subject of this month's Employee Spotlight! Kasey joined the Wessler team in 2015 and currently serves a vital role on various projects as a project engineer in the stormwater group.
We asked Kasey some questions so that we all can get to know her a little better, including her love for her dog, concerts, sports, and volunteering, as well as her recent hike in the Rocky Mountain National Forest. Congrats, Kasey!
The Indiana Department of Environmental Management (IDEM) recently announced that National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (NPDES) permits submitted for renewal or modification after January 1, 2019 will include total nitrogen monitoring requirements for sanitary dischargers who have a 1.0 MGD average design flow or greater. With the inclusion of total nitrogen monitoring in NPDES permits, it’s important to understand why nitrogen is being monitored and what is being required by IDEM.
Wessler is proud to announce Jay Dial as the subject of this month's Employee Spotlight! Jay joined Wessler in early 2018, and currently serves in our Fort Wayne, Indiana office as a resident project representative (RPR).
As a young engineer, I find myself constantly impressed with how much I don’t know. There have been so many days I’ve been proud of myself for making it through a day of work without asking any questions – and then come in the next day to realize I really should have. Luckily, I’m surrounded by patient coworkers who are willing to answer my dumb questions, assuring me that they remember their days in my shoes. Still, the idea of being in a room surrounded by experienced engineers discussing problems that even they do not understand sounds like an intimidating affair. So, when I got the opportunity to attend the Indiana Section American Water Works Association (AWWA) Annual Conference this year, I was more terrified than excited.
Wessler is proud to announce that Natalie Ercole is the subject of this month's Employee Spotlight! Natalie joined Wessler earlier this year and is a key team member who serves in our accounting department.
Wessler had the privilege of aiding Eastern Heights Utilities (EHU) and the Indiana Department of Transportation (INDOT) on the multi-million dollar I-69 corridor project that connected Indianapolis and Evansville, Indiana through Greene County. Wessler assisted with the relocation of several water mains, adding up to 19 projects in total. Services included studies, planning, design, and much more related to the avoidance of environmental impacts!

With the Indiana Finance Authority's State Revolving Fund (SRF) Loan Program's new requirements for communities to show their ability to accomplish Asset Management, we decided to create an infographic to show the good (just meeting the minimums), better, and best (going above and beyond) ways to present that information.
Wessler is proud to recognize not just one, but two team members for this month's Employee Spotlight!

While they have not worked here for long, they have both been tremendous and have taken on high levels of responsibilities for several projects.
