Zach Sperry, EI
Engineer in Wastewater Group


What’s the most rewarding thing about what you do?
Zach SperryEvery client prefers their data analysis results in different forms. It’s challenging and rewarding to provide those findings in a quantifiable way so that we can give the client a tangible result and idea of the condition their sanitary sewer systems are in. Once our rehabilitation and repair designs are implemented, it’s neat to be able to provide that benchmark result that proves our work was necessary.

Why did you choose this profession?
Math and science were always strong points for me in school so I wanted to utilize those skills in engineering while giving myself the best opportunity to have a stable career after school. I always thought Civil Engineering would give me the best shot to get out in the field out of all the engineering disciplines.


People don’t know?
I studied abroad in Swansea, Wales in the United Kingdom my junior year of college. It was an experience I wish everyone had the opportunity to enjoy and I’m endlessly grateful I did.


Extracurricular activities?
I love to travel and play just about any sport. If you get me active and outdoors, it’s hard to go wrong, but my favorite would be anything to do with baseball.


What is top on your bucket list?  
I’d have to say sky-diving in an exotic location. I want to sky dive where there’s something other than farmland and plains to look at while you free fall.


You in a nutshell?
I’m a Christian and place priority on that in my life; I was born and raised in Arlington, Texas so I’m a Texan at heart. I’m an only child with two amazing parents and a support system of friends and family second to none. I’m a proud University of Kansas alumnus and an avid music fan because I believe it does so much in so many different ways for every person. Rock Chalk and Go Rangers!
