Phone: 970-247-7091
Email: mlpool@fortlewis.edu

Mr. Pool has experience with water systems in buildings and conducting commercial water audits from his time as an engineer at a sustainability consulting firm. Through this work, he explored ways that the built environment could use water as efficiently and effectively as possible. He also spent 8 years as a multi-day whitewater expedition guide on the Colorado and Green Rivers with over 5,000 miles and 400 days on the river.

“Floating down a river in a raft is one of the happiest places I can find myself, and as the current carries me along I often think about all the life and all the communities which that river supports.”
