NEW ORLEANS, LA — Fenstermaker announces that Bill Katzenmeyer, PE, CFM, has been inducted into the American Society of Civil Engineers’ (ASCE) Ports & Harbors Committee. Katzenmeyer brings over two decades of experience in civil engineering, forensics engineering, water resources management, and more to the committee.

ASCE’s Ports & Harbors Committee’s primary mission is to “study and disseminate information on the planning, design, construction, maintenance, operation, pollution control, and technical functioning of ports and harbors.” They coordinate closely with port and harbor agencies nationwide. The committee rolls up to ASCE’s semi-autonomous institute, COPRI (Coasts, Oceans, Ports, and Rivers Institute).

Katzenmeyer has been a longtime member of ASCE, recently joining the Ports & Harbors Committee’s Sea Level Change Subcommittee. He has used his experience with benefit-cost analysis and sea level rise in his ongoing contributions to Chapter 7 of their “COPRI/ASCE Sea Level Change Assessment Framework for Ports & Harbors.”

Katzenmeyer has been a key member of Fenstermaker's New Orleans Water Resources team since 2021 under Engineering Director Jeanne Arceneaux Hornsby, MS, PE, CFM.

“Bill’s induction into the ASCE Ports & Harbors Committee is a testament to his unique expertise and extreme dedication to the field of engineering," Arceneaux Hornsby said. "His knowledge and aptitude position him perfectly as a valuable member of this prestigious group. We are proud of Bill’s achievements and look forward to his insights. We know that he will contribute valiantly to the field of port and harbor engineering.”

“As a newly appointed member, I am excited to serve on the ASCE COPRI Ports & Harbors Committee," Katzenmeyer said. "I look forward to working with the committee’s senior port facility managers and engineering consultants, through ASCE and COPRI initiatives, to continue tackling the pressing technical and engineering issues impacting ports.”
