Lee Mullon is a Senior Water Resources Engineer based in Florida with more than 15 years of experience focused on civil infrastructure adaptation and resiliency projects. His expertise is in developing risk-based assessments and adaptation design of public and private infrastructure that is vulnerable to changes in water quantity or quality. This includes sea level rise adaptation, groundwater elevation change assessment, precipitation change, stormwater management, flood control, alternative water consumption, water quality fate and transport, and water quality pollution abatement.
He has broad experience assisting municipalities and counties to address water resource issues, such as sea level backflow and nuisance flooding control, and future precipitation intensity-duration-frequency analysis. He has applied green infrastructure to sustainably address increased flood frequency and erosion control and provided integrated water resource management solutions for combined stormwater, gray water, and reclaimed/reuse water systems.
Lee routinely performs numerical modeling of stormwater, groundwater, and water quality systems to develop an understanding of the environment, from natural to urbanized systems. An advanced CAD designer, Lee supports resilient infrastructure retrofitting and other capital improvement projects both large and small.
Advancing the state of the practice in stormwater management, Lee has conducted multiple research and development efforts within Geosyntec to bring new, proven solutions to clients. R&D projects include continuous monitoring and adaptive control of stormwater harvesting systems, and the application of phytoremediation principles to use trees to control groundwater nutrient plumes and combat nutrient flux and surface water algal blooms.
Lee conducted stormwater research at the University of Central Florida's Stormwater Management Academy, includes climate change, satellite and ground-based remote sensing for water resource systems, and artificial intelligence-derived precipitation forecasting for water management. Lee is also an adjunct professor for UCF's Water Resource Design class.
