Southstar Communities has worked with Jamie Miller’s team over the past eight years. When we have a development that requires a wastewater solution, we rely on them to get the job done. We’ve been impressed by their ability to obtain regulatory permits in a timely manner.
Engineers that Excel
Our engineering team partners with Developer’s Engineers with a focus on wastewater. Our experience and expertise in the wastewater industry streamlines the permitting and design of this important component of your project.
Jamie began her career in 1996 as a design engineer. In 2005 she went to work for a construction company that focused on decentralized wastewater. In building an engineering group, she elevated the company to a design-build firm. In 2010 permitting and design in Texas became a key focus. Developing excellent working relationships with the TCEQ, utility districts, and local developers, she has established herself as a decentralized wastewater expert in Texas. With so much travel to Texas, it was fitting that her oldest child graduated from Texas A&M in Electrical Engineering. She is the proud mother of three children.
