Geosyntec Staff's Stormwater, Sediment Contamination Article Published in The Water Report

ATLANTA, Ga. — Geosyntec is pleased to announce that Eric Strecker, PE, Marcus Quigley, PE, D.WRE, CPESC, and Marc Leisenring, PE, authored the article "Stormwater & Sediment Contamination, Minimizing Potential Sediment Recontamination & Associated Liability" in The Water Report: Water Rights, Water Quality & Water Solutions in the West.

In the article, Eric, Marcus, and Marc discuss the potential — through more rigorous best management practice (BMP) selection, design, and implementation of an effective operation and maintenance program — to work with agencies responsible for overseeing contaminated sediment remediation to reach agreements that limit the potential future recontamination liability of site owners who design and implement rigorous stormwater source and treatment control programs.

Eric, based in Geosyntec's Portland, Ore., office, focuses on the design, monitoring, and evaluation of stormwater BMPs, and development of major project and watershed master plans. For more than 25 years, he has provided technical direction and assistance to public and private sector clients in stormwater master planning, National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (NPDES) permitting, Total Maximum Daily Loads (TMDLs), and surface water pollution assessment and control. He has an MSE in civil engineering from the University of Washington as well as a BS in fisheries science and BS in environmental engineering from Humboldt State University.

Marcus, based in Brookline, Mass., has more than 15 years of experience working on projects related to surface water hydrology, hydraulics, water quality, stormwater and erosion, as well as sediment control permitting and management. He is recognized as a national technical leader in stormwater BMP design, research and development, modeling, data analysis, and field data acquisition. He has an MS in civil and environmental engineering from Oregon State University and a BS in environmental engineering from the University of Notre Dame.

Marc, based in Portland, has nine years of water resources and urban stormwater quality project experience, including preparing stormwater BMP monitoring plans and design manuals, modeling urban hydrology, water quality, and BMP performance, as well as assisting in the development and implementation of water quality control programs. He has a BS in environmental resources engineering from Humboldt State University in California.
