EXAMPLES OF PROFESSIONAL ENGINEERING EXPERIENCE

Project Director; Coastal Modeling of Florida Bay for MFL Update – Responsible for salinity modeling activities to update the Florida Bay Minimum Flows and Level criteria for the South Florida Water Management District (SFWMD).  Two sets of models were utilized: (1) the FATHOM numeric mass-balance model and (2) the suite of 17 multivariate linear regression models of Florida Bay.  Salinity time series were developed for five (5) hydrology scenarios from input data provided by SFWMD. 

Principal Engineer; Environmental Evaluation of Minimum Flows and Levels for the St. Johns River Near DeLand, St. Johns River Water Management District (SJRWMD)—Assessed the impact of water levels and flows established by the SJRWMD for a portion of the St. Johns River on water quality, sediment loads, detrital inputs, and absorption of nutrients and other pollutants.

Project Manager; Mosquito/Indian River Lagoon, Nova Canal System, and Spruce Creek Watershed Management Plans, County of Volusia, Florida—Responsible for development of three separate stormwater master plans. Mosquito/Indian River Lagoon basin (Volusia County) is 63.3 sq. mi. with both urban and rural land uses; Nova Canal System basin is 22.4 sq. mi. and highly urbanized; Spruce Creek basin is 87 sq. mi. and mostly agricultural. Activities for all three master plans included compiling and analyzing flooding and water quality data, collecting flow and stage field data, developing stormwater system models, analyzing flooding situations, developing pollutant loading estimates using a GIS-based model, hydraulic modeling using SWMM programs, evaluating and specifying best management practices (BMPs) for pollution abatement, and development of life-cycle cost estimates for BMP construction and operation.

Co-Project Manager; East Indian River County Master Stormwater Plan, Indian River County, Florida—Responsible for managing water resource engineering aspects of this drainage basin evaluation of the 50,000+ acre Indian River Farms Water Control District. This study focused on water quality improvements for this mixed agricultural and urban land use basin. Pollutant loading goals established by the SJRWMD were used with BMP efficiencies to determine the most cost-effective alternatives.

Project Manager; B-23 Canal Stormwater Treatment System, City of Port Orange, Florida—Responsible for water quality monitoring for this BMP design and construction project, including preparation of quality assurance plan for sampling, collection of samples, analysis of data, and assessment of water quality within the Halifax River estuary.

Project Director; River Breeze Park Aquatic Plant Stormwater Treatment System, County of Volusia, Florida—Responsible for development of the treatment concept for an innovative stormwater treatment process using aquatic plants as a comparative demonstration with a conventional wet detention facility. Activities included preparation and submittal of a Clean Water Act or 319(h) application, development of water quality monitoring program and preparation of a Quality Assurance Project Plan, development of cost estimates, and management of design and construction activities.

Engineer-of-Record; Public/Private Stormwater Management Systems, Numerous Clients—Responsible for engineering design, system modeling, permit application preparation, and construction administration for over 250 stormwater management systems for water quantity (flooding) and water quality control using a variety of BMPs.

Project Director; Science and Engineering Support Services, South Florida Water Management District—Manager of program to provide a variety of professional services in support of District projects, including quality assurance for District’s structure database (flow and level data management).
