Clay Ellestad, PE

Civil Engineer

As an engineer, Clay finds it rewarding to see big construction equipment building his designs. He has worked on all phases of drinking water and wastewater designs, including water and wastewater facility plans, preliminary engineering reports, and conceptual design evaluations. Clay develops cost-effective engineered water designs to meet the needs of our clients and regulatory agencies.


Clay met his wife while they were working on a dude ranch in Colorado. They live in Boise with their two daughters and backpack, rock climb, bike, and adventure race in their free time.

What would surprise people about you? During college, I lived in my van (down by a lake) and traveled on the weekends running the sound for bluegrass bands
