GRAND ISLAND, Neb. – June 4, 2014 – Casey Campbell has joined the Great Plains Region staff in Nebraska as an engineer. Campbell will be a part of DU’s field office in Grand Island.
“We are excited to have Casey joining our engineering team in the Great Plains Regions,” said Mitch Messmer, senior regional engineer. “He brings with him valuable engineering experience from the Corp of Engineers in Illinois.”
Campbell worked in surveying, drafting and engineering design during his time at the Corps of Engineers. He will be providing engineering support for DU programs in Nebraska, Kansas and other states.
DU’s field office in Nebraska is developing a number of public lands projects along the Platte River and in the Rainwater Basin. Two recently completed projects were in the Quadhamer Waterfowl Production Area (WPA) in Franklin County and the Jensen WPA in Kearney County. These two projects will provide great habitat for spring migration and hunting opportunities in the fall.
DU is working with the Kansas Department of Wildlife Parks and Tourism on two large-scale projects for the Neosho Wildlife Area in Neosho County and on the Talmo Marsh in Republic County.
