TBS Welcomes Established Engineer to the Covington Office - Monday, March 23, 2015


March 2015 - T. Baker Smith, LLC (TBS) is pleased to welcome Richard A. Murley, Jr., P.E. to our Engineering solutions team in Covington, Louisiana.

Early in his high school career, Richard excelled in math and science and was interested in how things work.  He then decided to take what he learned and apply it to making his community better.

Richard holds a master's of engineering degree in civil engineering with an environmental specialty as well as a bachelor's degree in civil engineering from University of Notre Dame.  He is a licensed professional engineer in Louisiana and Mississippi.   

Richard has a broad civil engineering background with 43 years of experience in water, wastewater, and storm water design as well as construction management. He has prepared water quality management plans, evaluated water systems, and developed wastewater improvement programs for several local municipalities. Richard has been accepted into the American Academy of Environmental Engineers as a specialist in water and wastewater engineering. He is a certified project manager and was department manager for the local water resources department of an international engineering company. Additionally, Richard has served as City Engineer for two local Northshore cities, Covington and Mandeville.

Richard has accomplished many projects over his successful career, but one of the most rewarding was when he spent a great deal of effort designing a wastewater treatment plant.  Not only did he design the plant, he helped see the project all the way through construction.  It was after the plant was completed and operational that he saw the improvement to the water quality and knew he was right where he belonged, doing what he loved to do.

James P. Ledet, P.E., FACEC, Vice President of Engineering, states, "Richard's extensive background brings both project knowledge and an established professional reputation beneficial to our growth in the Northshore region."
