Tzufit Boyle, P.E., F.ASCE, a civil engineer with nearly 20 years of experience in groundwater contamination, solid waste management, wastewater design, and surface water design and operations, has been named a Fellow by the ASCE Board of Direction.
Boyle, now with HDR, is particularly passionate about water resources and the water quality of the Florida Everglades ecosystems, engaging projects in the Acceler8 Program. She has contributed to the success of multiple Comprehensive Everglades Restoration Program projects in the past 13 years. She has also been involved in both engineering and construction as a contractor for South Florida Water Management District projects, on projects ranging in size from small operations and maintenance to large-scale reservoir and stormwater treatment area projects.
Over the past five years, she has contributed most greatly to the construction efforts of the vicinity’s C-44 Projects, providing engineering support for the microwave communications tower, pump station, and stormwater treatment area components of the overall project. Most recently, Boyle assisted in the planning efforts for Lake Okeechobee Watershed Restoration Project, a project critical to the health of the western and eastern estuaries.
Early in her career, she worked on groundwater remediation projects throughout the Rust Belt, and had the opportunity to assist the Braddock Locks and Dam project in Pittsburgh, PA. After relocating to Florida, she worked on a range of projects, including wastewater processing and solid waste projects.
Boyle has been very involved in ASCE for the past 12 years by being active within her branch and section on various committees and through executive functions. She has focused her efforts on K-12 and secondary education by initiating a scholarship program within the Palm Beach Branch, attending outreach events, and volunteering as judge in grade school scientific and engineering competitions. She also advocates for the civil engineering profession through Government Relations involvement, participating in the Legislative Fly-In on a yearly basis and being a Key Contact.
Additionally, she has promoted the growth of the Palm Beach Branch by engaging the local engineering community, improving the membership experience, and bringing Society presence to the region. She currently serves on the EWRI Palm Beach Chapter Executive Committee, and is the current ASCE Florida Section District I Vice President. She hopes to continue her involvement on committees and leadership positions in all levels of the Society.
From Carnegie Mellon University, Boyle earned dual bachelor of science degrees in civil and environmental engineering, and engineering and public policy.
