Steven Roy, LEED AP, a principal environmental scientist based in Massachusetts, whose practice focuses on the assessment of water resource impacts from land use activities in urban, suburban, and rural environments.
Steve specializes in water resources management, stormwater management, and environmental impact assessment program management and administration. He works with the latest stormwater best management practices (BMPs) to design and implement low impact development (LID) programs for state and local community agencies. He also works with leading real estate developers to optimize the development potential of their properties through innovative applications of stormwater management techniques.
Steve has served in the U.S. EPA as the manager of the Wellhead Protection Program, where he developed programs, policies, and technical documents for the protection of groundwater quality. He has also worked for the Commonwealth of Massachusetts as the Water Management Program Manager and Groundwater Program manager in the Division of Water Supply. In this latter capacity, Steve was responsible for preparing regulations and developing a program for the control and permitting of all water withdrawals in the state. He also conducted technical reviews of the impacts of inter-basin water transfers on local water resources and managed a $10 million water supply protection land acquisition program for Massachusetts.
Steve continues to advance the state of the practice through his work on green infrastructure for urban stormwater management and combined sewer overflow controls. For New York City, Steve was Project Manager for pilot projects under the PLANYC initiative to design, test, and monitor green infrastructure in this ultra-urban environment. He also leads efforts to prepare stormwater master plans for municipal and federal government clients and serves on the Board of Directors of the non-profit Low Impact Development Center.
