CIVIL ENGINEER I
City of Roanoke

CityofRoanoke2

Civil Engineer I

When it rains, the water has to go somewhere, but for many people, just where it all goes is “out of sight and out of mind.” In Roanoke, our stormdrain system discharges all of the stormwater it collects to the Roanoke River or one of its thirteen tributaries, such as Peters Creek, Ore Branch, or Lick Run. From there it flows to Smith Mountain Lake, across the North Carolina border and eventually to Albemarle Sound.

As a City known for its outdoor activities and amenities, Roanoke recently created a Stormwater Utility to protect the health of the Roanoke River and its tributaries. To that end, Roanoke’s Stormwater Utility focuses upon capital stormwater construction projects, water quality initiatives and education, and maintenance of stormwater infrastructure.

Roanoke, Virginia is a unique locality with amenities that you’d expect from a dynamic urban center, without losing the charming feeling of a smaller place. Nestled in the Blue Ridge Mountains, the City of Roanoke is one of the area’s largest employers offering competitive health and dental benefits, life insurance, and retirement pension plans. Employees may also choose to participate in optional benefits including a deferred compensation plan and flexible spending account through payroll deduction.
