Ethics in the civil engineering field consist of many responsibilities. As an employer in the engineering field it is one's job to use moderate skills in analyzing, constructing and planning some sort of construction project without going over budget and being on schedule. This onsite project must be closely monitored and must be approved by working with other civil engineers and architects. In the case of my position, I would like to work in the water resources department of LA's Metropolitan Water District and rise to supervision management and be able to see the Hoover Dam in Nevada.
Another ethical responsibility to be taken as a water resources management would be to show resilience and moral support to all the other engineers who are having a tough time getting back together over difficult times, say, going over budget or the dismissal of a project. An engineer sees a problem and he/she tackles it from every corner until they reach an outcome all can agree on. A supervisor, especially, has the authority to call on the tough decisions and must admit when wrong as well as treat everyone equally no matter the circumstances (sexual orientation, gender, age race etc). To have the rules bent, for one's own needs is not an ethically move given your stand of higher authority does not give one the excuse needed to reach their own selfish needs. As supervisor, one must show behavioral aspects in their personality and decision-making because one unethical and childish decision could lead to their position being terminated.
