Professional Engineer Dan Gummersheimer has received his engineering license for the state of Illinois. He serves as project manager for Alliance Water Resources and is based in St. Charles County, Mo., near the Missouri/Illinois border.

Gummersheimer now holds the Professional Engineer licensure in both Missouri and Illinois: an important factor for communities in both states to consider when contracting for project management services. According to the National Society of Professional Engineers website at, “Only a licensed engineer may prepare, sign and seal, and submit engineering plans and drawings to a public authority for approval, or seal engineering work for public and private clients.”

Alliance\'s addition of a project management position in 2005 is in recognition of the needs of both current and prospective clients. Current clients can now bring Alliance project management expertise to utility and public works projects in their community, separately from their current operations and maintenance agreements. Additionally, communities that do not have an operations agreement with Alliance can choose complete project management services as an alternative or preview to a long-term operations agreement.

Headquartered in Columbia, Mo., Alliance Water Resources, Inc. is a leading provider of professional operations and maintenance services for community water and wastewater systems in Middle America. The company prides itself in its unique understanding of the needs of communities in Missouri, Iowa, Illinois and Kansas.
