FORT DODGE, Iowa, July 26, 2021 – Tony has joined the McClure team as a Senior Project Engineer.

Trotter enlisted in the Air Force for four years, where he trained as a Boom Operator, and his job was to transfer fuel from his aircraft (KC-135R) to another during flight (aerial refueling). He traveled the world in those four years and has been to over 20 countries. Trotter then attended and graduated from Iowa State University with a Bachelor of Science in Civil Engineering. After graduating, he worked for McClure in the North Liberty, Iowa office under the direction of Adam Bohr, who became one of his closest friends before his passing.

Trotter moved to Des Moines, Iowa, and took a job with HR Green, where he was a Project Engineer on their water team. He assisted with designing membrane water treatment plants, trained in Water Gems (Water CADD), and modeled a few city distribution systems. Trotter then worked for the City of Cedar Rapids, Iowa, as a Utility Engineer. He worked on Capital Improvements to their two water treatment plants and their wastewater treatment plant. Most recently, he served as the City Engineer for the City of Fort Dodge, Iowa.

Trotter is a licensed Professional Engineer in the State of Iowa. In his role, Trotter will be working with the Fort Dodge Office’s Water team, led by Michael Washburn, PE, to achieve McClure’s vision of making lives better. He said, “I am most excited about working on water projects on a full-time basis.”

When asked what made him come back to McClure, Trotter said, “Over the past three years, I have been working closely with the Water team in Fort Dodge on the Fort Dodge Reverse Osmosis Plant. The team that is assembled in Fort Dodge is the best I’ve been around, and I’m excited to be part of it.”
