Ken Vigil, PE, LEED AP

Principal Engineer

Helping expand Murraysmith’s expertise in stormwater planning and design, Ken leverages his practical knowledge of interconnected physical and ecological systems to solve complex water and natural resource problems. Ken takes pride in using his skills to mentor fellow team members, which he knows will ultimately help communities prosper, all while protecting and restoring the environment.


Ken’s interest in the environment doesn’t stop at his engineering work—he is an outdoorsman, taking in the natural beauty around him with his friends and family every chance he gets, especially when it involves exploring mountains and streams across the Western United States.

How does great engineering work? Great engineering starts by listening carefully to our clients so we can clearly understand their needs and goals, and then by helping them achieve these goals efficiently and economically.

What would surprise people about you? I worked for the US Forest Service on a regional “hot shot” fire fighting crew. We fought forest fires in California, Utah, Wyoming, Idaho, and Nevada, often flying into remote areas in helicopters.

Hobbies: Skiing, mountain biking, fishing, kayaking, and playing/writing/listening to music
