Jones-Heroy and Associates (JHA) was founded in Hutto, Texas in 2003 by Mr. Sam Jones following a 28-year career at the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality and its predecessor agencies. The original office relocated to the Austin area in 2008-2009 with the addition of Mr. Ken Heroy as a corporate partner and Vice President.
Mr. Ken Heroy manages our Austin office, which provides professional engineering services to water districts throughout Texas. Mr. Heroy took on the role of Corporate President in 2015, when Mr. Sam Jones retired. The Austin office represents special utility districts (i.e., Municipal Utility Districts) as District Engineer and provides construction plan review, operation and maintenance technical support, bond application preparation, administrative, and construction management services for those Districts.
Mr. Jason Jones joined Jones-Heroy & Associates as a corporate partner in 2010 with the vision of providing professional engineering service to public utility clients in the Central Texas region. Mr. Jason Jones manages our Lampasas office, and became Vice President in 2020. The Lampasas office represents several municipal, utility district, and investor-owned utility clients and provides utility regulation and planning support, water, wastewater, and drainage system design, and construction management support which complements the experience and vision of the Austin office.
Mr. Travis Clark, an engineer in our Lampasas office, became a corporate partner and Principal in 2019, and Mr. Shane Potter, an engineer in our Austin office, became a corporate partner and Principal in 2020. Together, we will continue the vision and quality service our clients depend on well into the future.
