Intern-Santa Clara Water Company
Thursday, Dec. 12, 2013
The goal of the flood warning project is to use modern weather forecasting, in conjunction with multiple telemetry stations, plus engineering computer models and simulations, to predict flooding. Residents can sign up to be notified via e-mail or text, and emergency responders can better plan for natural disasters.
An integral part of the project is to display all this information in a coherent and meaningful way on a web-based application that can accessed by the public. The District is seeking an intern who is self motivated to learn the existing data systems and connect it to a web application. In addition, the intern would work to improve functionality and overall aesthetics for the web application, while coordinating between different internal and external parties. He/she would work closely with District staff to implement the project.
The ideal candidate would understand database systems and be able to use their web programming skills to complete the task. A GIS and water resources engineering is preferred, but not required. This is a perfect opportunity to gain valuable work experience, as well as to work on a trail-blazing project within the water resources field that can directly affect people in a positive way.
