Darrin Miller


I currently serve as the Idaho Falls Field Office Chief for the Idaho Water Science Center. My career with the Federal Government has been over a course of more than 25 years with the United States Geological Survey.  I have had great opportunities working in surface water and water quality studies throughout Western Colorado and Eastern Montana during the first ten years of my career, offering a diverse background in both surface water and water quality hydrology.  Over the past decade, I have been located in the USGS, Northwest Washington Field Office and have continued my work and studies in surface water hydrology and managing surface water operations throughout Northwest Washington.  I have a professional background in hydroacoustics and publications in surface water quantity.
