HDR’s Beduhn Elected to the Board of America’s Watershed Initiative
Robert Beduhn, P.E., HDR’s director of civil works, dams and levees, has been elected to the board of directors of America’s Watershed Initiative. Beduhn will represent HDR and the National Hydropower Association, the organization which nominated Beduhn.
America’s Watershed Initiative is a collaboration working with hundreds of business, government, academic and civic organizations to find solutions for the challenges of managing the Mississippi River and the more than 250 rivers that flow into it. The board is made up of consultants, non-government, trade group and industry representatives. The United States Army Corps of Engineers is an advisor to the organization, which also produces a report card that measures six broad goals for America’s Watershed — ecosystems, flood control and risk reduction, transportation, water supply, economy and recreation — and how well each of these goals are met, using real data and relevant information that was identified by experts in these fields.
Beduhn is a senior vice president with extensive experience in the water resources field and has been with HDR for more than 22 years. Throughout his career, he has been engaged in some of the largest and most complex infrastructure and environmental projects in North America. He has direct management and technical experience in major flood control, design build, navigation and ecosystem restoration projects.
