Korey received his bachelor’s degree in civil engineering from Brigham Young University and has been working professionally since 1991. Having served as a city engineer, assistant city engineer and district engineer for over 21 municipalities, he has project management skills and technical expertise in municipal, industrial, water resources, planning, and environmental engineering. A few of his most notable projects include:
- South Heart Road Project: $67M roadway project consisting of over 26 miles of roadway, two bridges, and more than 325 drainage crossings.
- Eagle Mountain City Engineer: 7 years managing the development and construction of -- at the time -- the fastest growing community in Utah. Managed over $425M worth of infrastructure and over 4300 lots approved and improved.
- Ashley Valley Storm Water Plan: Created a storm water master plan for Ashley Valley in Uintah County that included evaluating irrigation canals, the Uintah River, and surrounding historical drainages and tributaries into the valley. Hydraulic and hydrological mapping was performed to identify flow rates, storage, sediment management, and water quality. Four communities and the county were included in the public relations and planning.
Korey's project management and technical skills include pump stations, large- and small-diameter piping, water quality, water treatment, water storage, roadway design, environmental, industrial piping, and oil and gas lines. While his technical experience is extensive, his greatest skill is his ability to see the profitable outcome of large projects and place the correct pieces into master plan phasing. He can evaluate the financial life cycle of a project to ensure the capital infrastructure is phased to meet the revenue generation expectations and potential expansion. Korey is experienced in working with funding received from grants, government bonds, loans, federal government allocations, and 3P cooperation. His vision and energy help clients stay focused while clearly identifying project milestones and potential obstacles.
Korey is passionate about the land, environment and people. Operating and expanding a multi-generational ranch allows him to personally practice what he daily professes. This passion and dedicated hard work translate into his engineering work as he strives to ensure the highest quality and sustainability in each of his projects. These projects are made successful through the relationships he has developed over the years with key private, business, local, state, federal, and tribal friends.
