Larry Caldwell, watershed specialist, has been selected as the Natural Resources Conservation Service’s (NRCS) nominee for the 2009 Federal Engineer of the Year Award (FEYA).

Sponsored by the National Society of Professional Engineers (NSPE), FEYA is awarded to an engineer employed by a federal agency that employs at least 50 engineers worldwide. Candidates are nominated by their employing federal agency. The Federal Engineer of the Year is selected by a panel of judges established by National Society of Professional Engineers - Professional Engineers in Government who consider engineering achievements, education, continuing education, professional/technical society activities, NSPE membership, awards and honors, and civic and humanitarian activities.

Caldwell has been recognized twice as the recipient of the NRCS National Awards for superior leadership, growth, and development of the NRCS National Watershed Rehabilitation Program that protects countless lives and properties across the nation. His most recent recognition was the National Award of Merit. This is the Association of State Dam Safety Officials’ (ASDSO) most prestigious award, given to individuals who have advanced the dam safety cause nationwide. This award, given by the ASDSO Board of Directors, was enthusiastically conferred to Caldwell in 2008 for “his efforts to ensure the safety of those living downstream of potentially dangerous dams”.

Caldwell will attend the FEYA ceremony and luncheon, scheduled for February 19, 2009, at the National Press Club in Washington, D.C., where the 2009 award winner will be announced.
