USA: Deputy District Engineer Earns D.WRE Certification

Dr. Edmond J. Russo Jr., P.E., D.CE, D.NE, deputy district engineer for Programs and Project Management for the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Galveston District, was named a Diplomate, Water Resources Engineer (D.WRE) of the American Academy of Water Resources Engineers (AAWRE), a subsidiary of the American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE) after earning the certification Tuesday.

The AAWRE’s certification was developed to improve the practice, elevate the standards and advance the profession of water resources engineers. The D.WRE certification is the highest post-license certification available in the water resources engineering profession and it is an accredited program by The Council of Engineering & Scientific Specialty Boards.

“I am honored to have been granted the D.WRE certification by the American Academy of Water Resources Engineers,” said Russo. “It represents a lifelong pursuit of engineering excellence, which I look forward to devoting to the Galveston District in leading change as we overcome challenges and pursue opportunities for delivering mission-based value to the nation and region.”

Russo was selected to fill the highest attainable civilian position in the district in January 2014 to oversee the concept to delivery of $350 million in district projects and services annually to include navigation, coastal risk reduction, ecosystem restoration, regulatory functions, emergency operations, military construction and international and interagency services mission areas.
