Eric DePhillips, E.I.
Eric majored in Environmental Engineering with a minor if Pure Mathematics at UVM. After an internship with the Rutland Regional Planning Commission, he ventured west to Malibu, CA, where he performed personnel air monitoring on the fire recovery teams clearing burnt debris in the wake of the Woolsey Fire. He returned to Vermont and became a Staff Engineer at DuBois & King before transitioning to OCE as a Project Engineer. He is responsible for the project design and management of small-scale projects with a focus on water/wastewater infrastructure design and contaminated site sampling and remediation.
After his uncle brought him along on a hike as a child, Eric has become an avid enthusiast, hiking ten of the 100 tallest mountains in New England so far. He is also an exotic fruit connoisseur, with Asian pears, papayas, and prickly pears as some of his favorites.
