Jason Thompson (BS Enivronmental Geology, 2008)

Water Resources Technician in La Conner, Washington

I'm in the Planning Department for the Swinomish Indian Tribal Community. The Water Resources program here at Swinomish exists to protect the quality and quantity of water resources available to the residents of the Swinomish Reservation.

My role is primarily to gather water level and quality data at a wide variety of freshwater, marine, and groundwater sites, organize and compile data, do some data analysis and QAQC, and generate reports. I'm also responsible for maintaining equipment and managing automated loggers. Occasionally I also get to dabble in sediment and elevation surveys, invertebrate surveys, and other special studies.
