WA State Certified On Site Wastewater Treatment system Designer, License #5100188


B.A. in Geology, University of Montana, 1982, with honors


I have over 29 years experience in evaluating soils in the Eastern Washington area for septic systems. I worked for 10 years with the Chelan Douglas Health District in the on-site wastewater division and drinking water division as an inspector. This experience prepared me to help our clients bridge the gap between what the client needs and what the local codes require. For the past 19 years, I have worked as the owner and operator of my own consulting firm, Tower Designs. I have also been a WA State Certified 3rd Party Sanitary Survey Provider (for drinking water wells). I have organized several soils education classes with the Department of Health to educate, train and provide in the field experience to other designers and regulators across the state.
