GSI Water Solutions, Inc. (GSI), is an employee-owned hydrogeologic and environmental consulting firm headquartered in Portland, Oregon. As hydrogeologists, engineers, environmental scientists, and water experts, we focus on helping our clients protect our shared natural resources. We help develop and manage environmental resources and ensure the long-term sustainability and reliability of this invaluable resource. As an example, we have long been a champion of using aquifer storage and recovery technologies to save water for drought conditions and provide environmental benefits to fish and streams which may be impacted by development and climate change.

GSI has an established track record of credibility with regulators for providing high quality science and engineering solutions and innovative approaches to address environmental issues. Our environmental work primarily focuses on large scale sediment and upland remediation projects in the Oregon and Washington area. We are currently developing a remedial design for a Project Area within the Portland Harbor Superfund Site, one of the largest contaminated sediment sites in the nation, as well as an ecologically sensitive, tidally influenced sediment site at another location in Oregon. Both require careful consideration of how climate change may impact the remedy.

The ideal candidate is a skilled engineer with experience in the remediation of complex sediment and upland sites to help manage and support a thriving and growing base of projects in Oregon and Washington. This is an exciting opportunity to join a passionate, high-performing team of professionals making a positive impact in the industry at an employee-owned company.
