Sparks, NV (PRWEB) May 17, 2013
Jensen Precast is pleased to announce the recent hiring of Walter G. Stein, P.E., Civil Engineer, to head up their stormwater division, Jensen Stormwater BMP/LID Systems. Jensen Stormwater Systems products include those for stormwater detention and retention; infiltration (including porous pavement); treatment (trash, debris, and pollutant removal); evapotranspiration; and bio-retention.
Mr. Stein acquired his Bachelor of Science degree in Civil Engineering from California Polytechnic State University, San Luis Obispo. He furthered his education by receiving a Master’s degree in Civil Engineering from San Jose State University.
Walt brings a multiplicity of experience to the Jensen stormwater team. His engineering career began when he served as a Combat Engineering Officer in the U.S. Army 7th Infantry Division based at Fort Ord in California. Post military, Walt was Project/Design Engineer for the Santa Clara Valley Water District (SCVWD), San Jose, CA for five years. In 1998, Walt accepted a position in project development and project engineering with CDS Technologies, Inc. in Morgan Hill, CA. He was named Vice President in 2006. Upon the acquisition of CDS Technologies, Inc. by Contech Construction Products, Walt served as Vice President of International Project Development. His accomplishments there included the expansion of the stormwater treatment rep network in Canada and in Europe from Italy to Ireland, and negotiating a partnership with Pan-Europe for distribution into the Netherlands, Belgium, France, Germany, and Great Britain.
In 2010, Mr. Stein founded WDD Engineering & Construction, LLC in Simi Valley, CA. focusing on stormwater equipment representation, reinforced concrete design of underground structures, water treatment equipment design and sales, as well as project engineering and consulting services for infrastructure and site development projects.
“We’re pleased to have Walt Stein on board,” says Don Jensen, Founder and CEO of Jensen Precast. “We believe his stormwater product design experience, and knowledge of the industry, will be invaluable as we develop more products to go along with our existing structures for stormwater infiltration; retention; gross solids, fine sediment, oil, and grease removal; and rainwater harvesting.”
