Welcome Matt Brust, Water Quality Intern

Here's Matt already hard at work
checking sediment levels in
catch basins at Maplewood Mall.
Matt Brust is the first of the new crop of summer
interns and is very excited to be working with the
Ramsey-Washington Metro Watershed staff!

Matt graduated from Vermillion Community College
last spring with a degree in Natural Resource Technology
in Forestry/Wildlife.

During the two summers between semesters, he
volunteered with Conservation Corps Minnesota and
Iowa Apprentice Academy.

  • The first summer he worked with the Anoka Conservation District. This was where he
    developed a passion for working with water
    resources and gathering data.

  • During his second summer with the Corps
    he worked with the Chisago Soil and Water Conservation District where he learned a lot
    about soils and the best management practices
    for agricultural benefit.

As the District Water Quality Intern, Matt hopes to
meet new challenges head-on and gain more experience
in the water resource field. He plans to use this experience
to help him reach his long-term career goal of becoming an
Environmental Educator.

Welcome Matt!
