CFS Engineering was founded by Clark Stoner as a specialty service civil and environmental engineering and land surveying firm dedicated to helping our clients achieve their most challenging objectives. We apply the principles of simplicity and aesthetic purpose to all that we do.

We combine civil engineering and land surveying expertise with an intuitive understanding of natural processes.  Our clients benefit from our broad understanding of all related disciplines and how each function in the development of total project solutions.  When CFS Engineering is on your team, you can say goodbye to the surprises that often accompany a project through its planning, design, permitting, and construction phases.  Your project will be top quality, and delivered on time.

The Founder

Clark E. Stoner III began his career in the sand piles of his father’s construction sites, but his passion for nature began while riding shotgun in his father’s pickup truck along countless road trips across the southwest. The geologic formations etched in his imagination a time when this arid expanse was a vast network of rivers, giant lakes, and pristine wilderness.  What was it like when Lewis and Clark first scanned this land, or John C. Freemont and Kit Carson, or John Wesley Powell?

In 1996, Clark graduated from San Diego State University with a BS in Civil and Environmental Engineering. Straight away he went to work for Malcolm Pirnie, Inc., a highly reputable multi-disciplinary civil and environmental engineering firm working on large water and wastewater infrastructure projects in San Diego, California, and the southwest.

By 1999, Clark took on a new job with multi-national firm Montgomery Watson working all over the United Kingdom on wet infrastructure projects after the European Union passed legislation increasing regulations on wastewater discharges into natural waterbodies.

It was during this time that Clark learned to become a diversified project engineer, field surveyor, and project manager. Clark returned home in 2002 with a restored desire to see the American landscape, to utilize his professional strengths in the achievement of this goal.  CFS Engineering was the product of this idea.

Our Philosophy

The continuous recirculatory transport of water from ocean to atmosphere to mountaintops and back to ocean is called the hydrologic cycle.

CFS (Cubic Feet per Second) is a unit of measurement representing flow, such as that of rivers. It is the flow of water that shapes the land, and yet it is land that bounds the flow of water.

One of the simplest and most profound fundamentals of nature, simultaneously yielding and unyielding, gentle and powerful, the flow of water carries the essence of all life. It is also the inspiration for our identity, CFS Engineering.

The Team

CFS Engineering is headed up by Clark E. Stoner, a professional civil engineer and land surveyor in California and Nevada.  CFS Engineering maintains a small and diversely qualified professional team adaptable to challenging and unusual projects.

We believe that mentoring is the foundation for professional growth.  Mr. Stoner actively participates in continuing education and professional development programs and has as a result developed a network of specialists preeminent in their respective fields.  Mr. Stoner has deep respect for and is passionate about the professions of civil engineering and land surveying.  Clients see this at first encounter.  Mr. Stoner maintains a bright, young, and motivated junior staff that benefits from a diverse and well rounded workload.  We create opportunity for our people so they can gain the maximum from their career choices.
