Justifiably, California residents wait with hopeful anticipation for the unyielding rain promised by the arrival of El Nino. Equally anxious, but for different reasons, are the utility companies and irrigation districts throughout the Sierra Nevada Mountains, Central Valley, and Bay Area.
Pounding rains alone can be a real problem. Add to that the unsettled ground conditions of fire-ravaged burn areas, and the unpredictability of what our winter weather beholds could be a recipe for a disaster.
Like you, we welcome the idea of California receiving significant precipitation this winter, and hope that that it’s plentiful yet kind. We also recognize that extreme flooding, eroding hillsides, and landslides can jeopardize the viability water conveyance infrastructure. Should an emergency arise, SAGE has a veteran team of engineers and geologists ready and available to assist you.
If you need emergency engineering services, contact SAGE to learn how we can be of assistance to you.
The College of Engineering at Cal Poly San Luis Obispo is an outstanding institution known for fostering a project-based learning environment that produces highly sought after graduates. It’s only fitting, then, that Steve Sanders, proud father of a recent Cal Poly engineering grad, join their Industry Advisory Board (IAB).
With a focus on enhancing and sustaining its relationships between university faculty and governmental representatives, IAB serves as a vehicle for input on matters affecting the excellence of education at the college. According to Sanders, “It’s an honor to be able to contribute to an engineering program in a way that helps advance the profession.”
Industrial advisory council and board members serve by invitation from the College of Engineering Dean and department chairs.
SAGE Senior Engineer Kyle Dushane was elected Junior Director for the Sacramento Section of the American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE). The two-year commitment requires Kyle to work closely with the Sr. Director to coordinate two annual events, and learn the ropes of the organization as he prepares for a future board seat.
A practicing engineer for nearly ten years, Dushane is also a member of SAGE’s Rope Access Team. With extracurricular activities including golf, softball, snowboarding, and most importantly his family, Kyle continues to successfully focus his professional sights on upward mobility.
ASCE is the leading provider of technical and professional conferences and continuing education, the world’s largest publisher of civil engineering content, and an authoritative source for codes and standards that protect the public.
If you’re looking for the latest in luxury car amenities, you won’t find them at the annual Shell Eco Marathon.
Instead you’ll find an assortment of futuristic looking, ecofriendly, and fuel-efficient vehicles designed and built by students—including those from Northern California’s Granite Bay High School (GBHS).
The annual competition challenges students to come up with an ultra energy-efficient vehicle that can travel the furthest using the least amount of energy.
SAGE helps to sponsor the engineering program and support the students of GBHS, who have created a variety of models over the years that have achieved results of well over 100 miles per gallon.
