Josh Briggs: engineer extraordinaire, among other things

Posted on August 30th, 2009 by Water Nymph in Heroes

JoshSmallRainwater’s Senior Project Engineer, Josh Briggs, joined the team in June 2008. His expertise in the integration of rainwater harvesting with stormwater management and water resources engineering have been invaluable, enhancing the amount and quality of Rainwater’s projects.

He’s an adventurous fellow, riding his bike to work through the scary streets of Boston, daring the crowds at the presidential inauguration, and here, in the photo at left, camping in the White Mountains. Still, he brings that engineering flavor to everything he does. Josh says, “This was from winter camping last February in the White Mountains at Zealand Falls. Camped out with friends on a four foot snowpack–a beautiful spot. The picture was taken as I was attempting to start a fire in a hole I had dug near a tree well. They thought it incredibly humorous that I was scrambling all over the place finding dead wood and kindling only to have a modest fire at best… but I was the only warm one in the end!”
