Minnick led an elementary school field trip during construction and restoration of the Fleshman Creek Corridor earlier this year.

Minnick led a field trip for students from two local schools during construction and restoration of the Fleshman Creek corridor in April.

Caleb Minnick, a civil engineer based in CTA’s Livingston, MT, office, recently augmented his Professional Engineer license by becoming an ASFPM Certified Floodplain Manager (CFM). Minnick says a CFM credential will provide him with an area of expertise to provide to CTA projects as many of his assignments involve working near Montana’s rivers and streams.

“As a CFM, I hope to offer support for existing clients and local riparian projects. Plus, this certification will help demonstrate to prospective clients an area of expertise that is often vital to their projects’ needs,” Minnick says.

Added CTA’s Civil Group leader Erik Garberg: “In the civil engineering world, this is a significant credential, and Caleb’s achievement is worthy of acknowledgement.”

Minnick’s primary focus within civil engineering is H&H (hydrology and hydraulics), which he says lends itself well to the floodplain certification and the type of riparian projects on which he’s recently worked.

Minnick, who holds a BS in civil engineering from Montana State University, began working for CTA in September 2010, and has completed CE designs for many building projects, and provided construction oversight for public and private clients alike. His most prominent recent projects include the Fleshman Creek restoration project and the Park County Fairgrounds sanitary sewer extension in Livingston, and Hammond Bay Biological Station in Millersburg, MI.
