Reaching out to future engineers

Jordan B. talking to future engineers.“When you go home at night, you feel good about what you do.”

That’s what Director of Engineering Jeremy Raney recently told a group of University of Louisville students about one of the benefits of working at Louisville Water.

The setting was an informal lunch at the J.B. Speed School of Engineering. The students were members of the UofL American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE) Student Chapter.

Jordan Basham, Louisville Water’s Director of Infrastructure Planning and Records, told the students that our company has a “culture of innovation.” Vice President Tim Kraus pointed out that because of this culture as well as an expanding number of large engineering projects and possible retirements in coming years, “There are going to be lots of opportunities, and we want to make sure you’re aware of us as an employer.”

The soon-to-be engineers seemed genuinely interested and asked a lot of questions about our projects and our company. Raney pointed out that our commitment to innovative engineering goes all the way back to the beginning of Louisville Water, and “we embrace our history.” By participating in the UofL event, we also are preparing for the future.
