“My inspiration comes from working collaboratively with clients and public stakeholders to solve complex problems and build long-lasting advocacy for needed solutions,” is how Dan Rodrigo describes what motivates him. With over 100 projects completed at CDM Smith, Dan has lent his expertise to a vast array of One Water initiatives.
Dan specializes in integrated water resources planning, decision science, and climate risk and resiliency. He uses specialized computer tools and scenario planning to help garner stakeholder consensus and develop water plans with adaptive management strategies. Plans led by Dan and CDM Smith’s One Water experts have garnered public support for over $15 billion of water resources investments in North America and abroad.
Dan has been recognized by his peers for his innovative approaches to supply innovation, as well as his ability to create resiliency as a project manager; the Austin Integrated Water Resources Plan project, led in part by Dan, won the 2018 Superior Award in the AAEES E3S competition.
“I’m proud to be a part of CDM Smith because this company embodies employee dedication, outstanding client service, creativity and integrity,” Dan says.
Integrity means doing the right thing despite the availability of an easier path.
