PUF: Tell us about your job and the Cardinal-Hickory Creek project.
Aaron Curtis: I'm a Senior Project Manager, working on the development and construction of transmission line and substation projects in Iowa, Wisconsin, and Minnesota. With the scope of it in the utility world, it's definitely a once-in-a-lifetime project. We're working with two other utilities in two states and working through a federal environmental review process.
I'm fortunate to be leading the project. It's been a challenging yet rewarding project and I appreciate ITC's leadership and their trust in me.
