Drummond Carpenter, PLLC welcomes a new Senior Engineer to our team — an applied mathematician with more than 20 years of experience addressing water resource issues in a dozen states. An expert in hydraulic modeling, Mike Jankowski has spent much of his career using numerical modeling to perform short- and long-term water and wastewater master planning. Based in Bradenton, Florida, Mike has served municipalities across the Sunshine State as a consultant and public servant in towns ranging from a few thousand residents to some of the nation’s fastest-growing regions. Although he originally intended to be a “short-timer” in Florida, Mike fell in love with the weather, environment, and the state’s advanced practice of water, wastewater, and stormwater engineering. Mike is an expert in a wide array of distribution and collection system software packages on projects involving conveyance systems, pump stations, and treatment plants, and has experience with both hydraulic transient and computation fluid dynamics modeling. He is an active leader in water and wastewater engineering at the local, state, and national levels through his involvement in professional committees and organizations. Mike also is currently working on his Ph.D. in civil engineering with a research focus in resiliency and sustainability for utilities — to add to his B.A. in Applied Mathematics from Columbia University, M.S. in Civil Engineering from Texas A&M University, and M.E. Environmental Engineering Sciences degree from the University of Florida. When not immersed in the role of “engi-nerd,” Mike’s time is often occupied by two beagles and a hellhound who take land surveying to another level with old school “scenthound” technology.
