Jason Rutyna, PE, is an Environmental Engineer with over 15 years of professional experience in the field of civil and environmental engineering. Jason has extensive experience providing our clients with scientific and engineering analyses to help them make informed decisions to address their environmental and water resource challenges. His expertise includes surface water quality modeling, hydrodynamic and sediment transport modeling, open channel hydraulics, and water resource systems analysis. Jason works with the development and application of hydrodynamic/hydraulic models, hydraulic transient/pneumatic models, water quality models, and mixing zone models. He’s also involved in Total Maximum Daily Load (TMDL) modeling and analysis, water quality data analysis, and three-dimensional geostatistical interpolations. Jason contributed to numerous combined sewer overflow (CSO) tunnel projects and applied LimnoTech’s SHAFT model to evaluate surges, transients, and pneumatic effects in these large storage tunnel systems. He also applied the open-source computational fluid dynamic (CFD) software program, OpenFOAM, to evaluate urban street flooding issues related to a CSO tunnel. Jason is an expert in developing client-deliverable databases with a wide variety of data types such as water quality, biological, habitat, continuous monitoring, meteorological, and point source data.
Jason has a BS and MS in Civil and Environmental Engineering from Wayne State University with a focus on water resources and environmental engineering and is a licensed professional engineer. Jason works at LimnoTech’s Corporate Headquarters in Ann Arbor, Michigan.
