Fifer honored by CSU
Scott Fifer, hydrologist and president of Resource Engineering Inc., was recently awarded the Outstanding Alumnus Award from the Warner College of Natural Resources, Colorado State University. Each year, the Colorado State University Alumni Association honors an outstanding alumnus from each of the university’s eight colleges. Recipients have demonstrated service to the university, state or nation. Fifer received his award at a banquet in The Lory Student Center at CSU in Fort Collins.
Fifer, in cooperation with the Copper Mountain Ski Resort, has assisted the university’s watershed science department in the development of a senior capstone class.

Students graduate with real life, hands-on experience in their field. In addition to his work with the senior student program, Fifer annually returns to the university as a guest lecturer on topics of water rights and watershed management.
