Jack is a registered Electrical Engineer since 1972; Mr. Terry provides design and
electrical engineering services for a variety of municipal, commercial and industrial projects. Jack has
over 35 years of electrical design experience having had the pleasure and responsibility of serving as
project electrical engineer on both large and small jobs ranging from water, waste water, automation
systems, and power distribution to energy efficient lighting designs.
His projects have included the new $6 million City of Nyssa, OR Waste Water System including modernization
and upgrades of their lift station collection system and the addition of a waste water reuse system which
was chosen by the local chapter of AWWA as “PROJECT OF THE YEAR”. Incorporation of wireless data collection
and SCADA systems provided remote monitoring of outlying stations and operation of the new Irrigation Pumping
Station was enhanced through use of Programmable Logic Controller (PLC) automation which turned out to be both
operator friendly and cost effective. Working with city personnel and other design professionals, the electrical
and control system design addressed concerns for energy efficiency, ease of operation, appropriate use of automation,
regulatory and operational data collection as well as life safety and esthetic enhancements.
When the City of Stanfield waste water facility no longer met discharge requirements, Mr. Terry served as Project
Electrical Engineer for the design and construction of upgrades where the challenge involved dissecting a number
of additions added to the plant over time and designing an automation system involving networked PLC control
with SCADA monitoring of the entire upgraded facility. Stanfield is adding a new well, reservoir and booster
station to its water system and Jack has recently completed this electrical and control system design after
being invited back for this follow on assignment.
Other municipal and commercial electrical design and control system projects have included City of Seneca, OR
water system improvements; Pacific Pellet Mill Industrial Project, Bend, OR; Baker City, OR new head works upgrades,
water collection automation study and upgrade of their water system hydro generator facility; 70,000 Sq Ft Fruitland, ID
elementary school and band building; Malheur Federal Credit Union Building, Ontario, OR; Cities of Burns & Hines, OR
Joint Waste Water Treatment Improvement Project electrical and automation design and others too numerous to mention.
Air Field electrical design, lighting and related airport electrical systems is a particular passion due to his long time
background as pilot, flight instructor and aircraft owner. Jack offers hands on ability with a pilots prospective
when it comes to air field electrical services such as design, technical, troubleshooting, maintenance practices or
inspection for new and existing airport projects. His background includes a 12 year career in commercial avionics
design as a principal design engineer.
Mr. Terry’s project experience also includes a wide range of commercial, industrial and institutional projects that
have encompassed power generation, standby power, energy efficiency, lighting design, automation systems, motor controls,
fire alarm, audio, emergency and life safety systems. He offers a diverse background in analytical skills with pride
and hands on follow through.
