10 Questions with Dustin Bohn

Where would you spend all your time if you could?
Any body of water. Anything from the ocean/beaches to lakes and rivers. I love being in and around water.

What is something you think everyone should do at least once in their lives?
Travel to another country for at least a month. You never know who you might meet or what you might learn!

If you didn’t have to sleep, what would you do with the extra time?
I might be able to catch up on all the TV shows others have recommended or actually finish the ones I have started.

What question would you most like to know the answer to?
Why do we have to sleep?

Where is the most relaxing place you’ve ever been?
Fort Bragg, CA. A weekend in the Beachcomber Hotel staring out at the coast and eating delicious sea food always does the trick.

What hobby would you get into if time and money were not an issue?
I would get my pilot’s license and fly my own private jet. But I can live with a single prop Cessna too.

What’s the best single day on the calendar?
Thanksgiving! A holiday dedicated to eating, no contest!

What is the best part of your job?
Having the chance to get out of the office and work in the outdoors from time to time.

How did you get into engineering?
I cannot remember a time where I didn’t want to be an engineer, but I ultimately decided to be a civil engineer because I enjoyed the idea of being able to problem solve real world infrastructure issues. The longevity of the solutions civil engineers come up with has always fascinated me.

What do you do for your job?
While working with the MBK Water Rights Group, I’ve had the opportunity to assist and learn from the Water Rights team when navigating California water law. This includes helping water users properly report usage and maintaining compliance. I also assist by conducting field visits across the northern valley to monitor groundwater aquifer levels.
