The team enjoyed working closely with the Kent County Drain Commission (KCDC) throughout the detention basin redesign process. KCDC has been an excellent client for the team, providing data, figures, reports, models and engineering feedback. Dr. David Wunder has been an invaluable resource as well, acting as the team advisor. Brad Quist and Brian Benson did the majority of the preliminary research for the team, pollutant quantification, cost estimates and Calvin Basin design. Tyler DeNooyer and Tyler Hanna were primarily in charge of gathering data on the current basins, developing the computer models and designing the Southfield Basin.
Tyler Hanna grew up in Traverse City, Michigan. Tyler had an engineering internship with KCDC last summer. He enjoys various outdoor activities and sports, including fishing and camping, and is currently captaining the Calvin College Ultimate Frisbee Team. Tyler is still unsure what he wants to do after graduating. He is interested in pursuing water resource or environmental engineering as a career upon graduation, and possibly pursuing a master’s degree in one of these areas.
Brad was born and raised in Grand Rapids, Michigan. He enjoys various outdoor activities including fishing, hunting, and camping. Brad is interested in pursuing a career in water resources or environmental engineering after graduation.
Tyler DeNooyer will be graduating in May 2013 with a B.S.E. with a Civil & Environmental Concentration. Tyler has lived his whole life in Grand Rapids, Michigan, excluding one amazing semester in Amsterdam, Netherlands. In Amsterdam, Tyler was able to study the extraordinary Dutch environmental history and sustainable water management. Tyler has had a traffic engineering internship with the City of Grand Rapids Traffic Safety Department last summer. This summer he will have an environmental/geotechnical internship with Weaver Boos Consultants. He enjoys various outdoor activities and sports, including playing soccer at Calvin College, and currently captaining the Calvin College Ultimate Frisbee Team. After graduation, Tyler will be pursuing a master’s degree in Civil Engineering at the University of Illinois in their Energy-Water-Environmental Sustainability Program..
