Ben Foster, PE

Civil Engineer

Ben enjoys helping people live easier and more comfortable lives, whether it’s increasing access to clean drinking water or widening a street to reduce traffic. He is a key design and field engineer with expertise in the distribution and transmission of water mains, pump stations, and reservoirs. He has served in a variety of planning, design, and construction administration roles on several successful new pipeline and reservoir projects.


Born and raised in Oregon, Ben thinks of the Pacific Northwest as his playground and enjoys being active outdoors, whether it’s at the beach, forest, rivers, or on the mountain.
