NovemberNovember Engineers News

This month we highlight two of the bigger projects in Local 3's jurisdiction – a Rohnert Park subdivision job that avoided being shut down because of California's drought after operators discovered water onsite and the Kingsbury Grade project in Nevada, which has been years in the making!
