Dusty Robinson

Supervisor - Stream & Stormwater

Fort Collins, CO

"Dusty is a very bright engineer with a lot of experience on river restoration projects. He has spent a lot of time in the field and has a great understanding of detailed hydraulic modeling of complex systems. He also excels at doing designs for river projects."
Thomas Smith

I supervise Ayres' river systems health discipline, focusing on stream restoration, stream stabilization, and pre- and post-fire mitigation projects such as those the Stream & Stormwater Group has performed for the Colorado communities, as well as providing dam removal and rehabilitation services in support of the Water Resources Group.

In my over 25 years at Ayres, my water resources engineering work has focused on river engineering studies, floodplain mapping, flood mitigation, bank protection design, river restoration, aquatic habitat analysis, grade control structure design, channel stability analysis and design, and scour analysis.

I've learned from industry experts in the river engineering field on projects that are of personal interest to me as well as technically challenging.

I have a lot of experience in hydraulic modeling and design and have provided 1-dimensional and 2-dimensional modeling for projects across the country. I also have a working knowledge of the data collection process needed to perform real-time and post-process hydrographic surveying, including operation of GPS equipment, survey grade fathometer, and computer software. I am experienced in processing hydrographic survey data, including data reduction and mapping.

My areas of expertise include:

  • Water resource engineering
  • Hydrographic surveying
  • Hydraulic modeling and analysis
  • Hydraulic design
  • GIS mapping and project design
  • GPS
  • CADD
  • BS, Civil Engineering, Colorado State University
  • Registered Professional Engineer, MS
