About Us

Located in Sacramento, California, MBK Engineers (formerly Murray, Burns & Kienlen, Consulting Civil Engineers) has provided clients with complete engineering and consulting services in the areas of water rights, flood control, water resource planning and environmental documentation since 1967. The staff, consisting of professional engineers with registrations in California, Nevada and Oregon, and a registered land surveyor, are uniquely experienced and qualified to perform analyses in hydrology, hydraulics, planning, and operations.

The professional staff is supported by a variety of resources, including a library comprised of photos, government documents, primary sources and historical materials, maps and drawings developed through research and first hand experience of major water resources and flood issues, projects and events in California and other areas. An experienced technical support staff supplies comprehensive CAD, GIS, cartography, presentation graphics, and field services.

In addition to our experience and historical awareness, we are also involved in today's most prominent water issues, and we utilize cutting edge modeling tools and analytical techniques to solve our clients' problems in these areas.
