Wallace Group attended the ribbon cutting ceremony for the City of West Richland's Industrial Winery Water Treatment Plant, an innovative treatment facility sponsored by the City as a perk to draw wineries to the booming (and vineyard-friendly) tri-cities area of Washington State! WG served as Project Engineer, and was instrumental in getting grant funding from WA state for implementation of the facility.

Wallace Group family and friends hit the streets at the City to the Sea race this past weekend in Pismo Beach, California. It was a beautiful, sunny day full of Personal Records, good food, and a lot of fun. This year 8 WG employees competed in the 5k race, and our very own Zach Morgan took first place! Congrats to Zach and all the runners!

Description: My name is Nick Sine, but you can call me Nick Opposite/Hypotenuse. I heard lots of sine jokes from my math teachers growing up, and I had one Spanish teacher who loved singing that horrible Ace of Base song every time I walked into class. I grew up in Shell Beach and live there still today. Actually, I have never lived farther than three blocks from the beach. I’m proud of this, but anybody can do it. You don’t have to be rich; you just have to have low standards for housing. However, I have lived elsewhere. After graduating from Cal Poly with a degree in agribusiness and working in the industry, I spent 2008 to 2012 in Del Mar, California while my wife went to graduate school at UCSD. It was during this time that I began part time work land surveying. When we moved back home, I eventually found full-time land surveying work, and I have no plans to return to agriculture. Getting to geek out on the computer one day and bushwhack up a mountain the next are the main reasons I love land surveying. I’ve been at Wallace Group for one year, two months, and five days. I love the Central Coast and will often drive an hour or two North or South for some combination of hiking, surfing, and spearfishing. I especially enjoy when boundary surveying allows me to get glimpses of the hard-to-get-to nooks and crannies that make this area so beautiful. Questions not necessarily in order of importance: Describe what you do at WG I measure things while trying to be both accurate and precise. What are some of your favorite activities with WG? I’m going to be honest on this one. I love having my desk near the break room when left over food and snacks are brought in. What are you involved in outside WG? (Charities, Organizations, Service groups?) Is this question supposed to make me feel lazy? Favorite pastime Without a doubt I would surf (with my wife) with all my free time if only this portion of the Pacific weren’t a lake most of the year. Favorite movie It’s hard to choose between The Big Lebowski and The Princess Bride. Favorite food I have an amazing chocolate pie recipe that was my great grandmother’s friend’s mom’s from back when the cocoa was delivered by horses. Describe your dream vacation. My favorite vacations are always surf trips around the world with good, uncrowded waves. What’s your favorite childhood memory? I went on a really great road trip to Washington DC and back with my family the summer after 6th grade. It really opened my eyes to the many landscapes across the US. I should mention that we were driving a white Ford Bronco and it was the year after the OJ car chase. We heard a lot of colorful remarks along the way. What’s your secret ability? (expert pool player, play the harmonica, know how to tap dance) I’m kind of a cat whisperer. What is the furthest away from SLO have you been? This is a great excuse to open up Google Earth at work… Indonesia. IMG_0172

The Monterey APWA Chapter hosted their annual golf tournament in Seaside at the Bayonet/Black Horse Golf Course on Friday, September 30th. The beautiful but overcast morning hosted 80 golfers that took the day off to socialize and raise money for a great cause, which provides scholarships and internships to local college students in engineering programs. Todd Bartolome, Kari Wagner, and Kyle Anderson of Wallace Group teamed up with David Rubcic of the City of Hollister to complete their “turf inspections,” bringing in a score of one over par. Although they didn’t come close to winning, Kari did take home the longest drive for the female golfers…She had a 50/50 chance!!

Wallace Group maintains a long-standing business and personal friendship with the legendary John Jenks, now age 92. John followed in his father’s footsteps in sanitary engineering and founded Kennedy/Jenks Consultants, a national engineering firm with over 500 employees and 31 offices nation-wide. John graduated from Stanford University in 1948 and has been a practicing licensed civil engineer since 1951. He has been involved in the design of over 250 wastewater plants during his long career, and has been instrumental in partnering with Wallace Group on many central coast wastewater engineering endeavors. John Wallace and Steve Tanaka visited John Jenks (pictured to the right) at his home in Atherton, California on September 27, 2016, where he and his wife Lori have lived for 54 years.
