Kathy Tixier is a registered Professional Engineer with EGBC and holds a Master of Applied Science in Hydrogeology from UBC. She has nearly 20 years of experience in environmental and water resource engineering; and has worked in both the for-profit and not-for-profit sectors.
Kathy’s early work experience included managing contaminated site projects from the preliminary investigation to remediation stages. She has studied the fate and transport of hydrocarbons, caustic, mercury, salt, landfill leachate, and acid mine drainage in groundwater. For the last decade, her focus has been on groundwater resource development and stewardship, including production well siting and design, aquifer protection planning and monitoring, GUDI/GARP studies, and well maintenance and rehabilitation. During her 3-year tenure as General Manager of the British Columbia Ground Water Association, she organized three conventions, oversaw the publication of the Ground Water Protection Regulation Handbook, and brought new training opportunities to members.
Kathy enjoys gardening, painting, swimming, riding, and hiking in the great outdoors with her husband and two teenage kids.
