After earning a Bachelor of Science degree in Environmental Chemistry from the University of Georgia, Erin came to Montana as an Americorps member serving with the Gallatin Conservation District. After her term, she worked for the Forest Service conducting stream and riparian assessments in the Little Belt and Castle Mountains, and then Montana State University Extension- Water Quality where she administered the Well Educated program, developed sampling and analysis plans and monitoring protocols for conservation districts and watershed groups, and assisted in water quality monitoring efforts. Before coming to Montana Rural Water, she worked for a consulting firm conducting site assessments, groundwater monitoring, and writing monitoring reports.
Erin is excited to join Montana Rural Water to work with systems and communities to develop and implement source water protection plans. Contact Erin if you have any questions regarding Source Water Protection or if you are interested in developing a plan.
