Todd Rudolph

Water Resources Engineer

Eau Claire, WI

"Working on dams provides me with challenging work since each dam has its own unique characteristics. I enjoy interacting with dam owners to not only help them with their project but also learn from them and their experiences in the operation of the dam."
Todd Rudolph

In my over two decades at Ayres, I have performed a variety of engineering tasks, including hydraulic and hydrologic computations; design and inspection of hydraulic structures, such as gate design and inspection; and related structural design. I also provide construction inspection support, and I am an approved Part 12D inspector for Federal Regulatory Energy Commission (FERC) dams.
