Each year, SEE’s Summer Internship hires college student interns to work out of our Orono, Maine office, as field technicians to perform stormwater infrastructure inspections and related tasks. These inspections support regulatory permit requirements that local municipalities and institutions must meet in order to comply with the Maine Department of Environmental Protection’s (MDEP) Stormwater Program. The primary compliance tasks conducted by interns between May and August are:
- Stormwater infrastructure inspections
- Stormwater infrastructure mapping
- Stormwater runoff sampling
Interns are supervised by professionals at SEE, yet are expected to work independently, with attention to detail and professionalism.
SEE typically employs students living in the Orono area who are majoring in environmental engineering, environmental science, or related fields. We have a strong relationship with the University of Maine College of Engineering – the alma mater of many of our staff and interns – and consider UMaine to be a significant internship program resource and partner.
Skills gained and practiced as part of a SEE internship experience are valuable for any student going into an environmental profession. Since the company started in 2013, we have been fortunate to employ many outstanding interns, who have moved on to careers and/or post-graduate academic endeavors.
