Alison E Tecca

Alison is a Hydrologic Technician with the USGS Colorado Water Science Center (COWSC), in Lakewood, CO.

Alison started her career with the USGS in Tacoma, WA as an independent contractor during the 2013 federal hiring freeze. As part of the Tacoma Studies division, she worked on a diverse set of projects including suspended and bedload sediment sampling in various coastal and large inland rivers, water quality monitoring and tidal mapping in the Nisqually Delta, and supporting the decades long NAWQA groundwater sampling effort in Eastern Washington. In 2018 she joined the Western Washington Field Office in Tacoma as a surface water hydrographer where she ran a small network of stream gages in the south Puget Sound region. She transferred to the COWSC in 2021 to continue work as a hydrographer specializing primarily in water quality data collection and analysis.
