TCPUD enhances capital project delivery
The Tahoe City Public Utility District (TCPUD) has enhanced its utility and parks capital project management capabilities with the hiring of Sarah Hussong Johnson as the newest member of the District’s engineering deam.
Hussong Johnson has a Bachelor’s in Civil and Environmental Engineering from the University of Michigan and is a registered professional civil engineer in the State of California. She has more than 13 years of experience in the development and implementation of civil engineering projects, specializing in the design, construction and management of municipal infrastructure improvements.
She comes to the District from the City of South Lake Tahoe where she led the City’s Engineering division as the city engineer and worked on a diverse portfolio of capital improvement and water quality projects, including the Bijou Area Erosion Control Project and the Harrison Avenue Streetscape Improvement Project, which are public-private partnerships.
“The TCPUD position appealed to me because the District has an interesting mix of capital projects, from recreation to utility infrastructure,” said Hussong Johnson. I had a great tenure with the City, and am looking forward to this new opportunity with TCPUD.”
