Mr. Krishnan has prepared numerous stormwater pollution prevention plans, and has also served as the project manager and technical lead for the development of a stormwater master planning model tool for a federal client to aid in infrastructure optimization. He is a Certified Level I & II Trainer for Erosion and Sediment Control in Georgia, and has conducted numerous training workshops to assist clients with construction NPDES compliance.
Chad Drummond Chad Drummond, PE, D.WRE, BCEE
Mr. Drummond is a senior water resources and environmental engineer based in Florida whose practice focuses on hydrologic and water quality modeling, environmental restoration, and water resources engineering. He specializes in projects involving impaired waters, and has evaluated contaminant and nutrient migration to and from both surface water bodies and groundwater. In addition to his practice, Mr. Drummond is an adjunct professor at Lawrence Technological University in Southfield, Michigan and Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University in Daytona Beach, Florida. As an adjunct professor he teaches senior level undergraduate and graduate courses in environmental engineering, hazardous waste, and groundwater flow and solute fate and transport modeling. Mr. Drummond has presented his water resources and environmental restoration work in peer reviewed journals and at technical conferences across the United States, and is active at the state and national level with various professional societies including the National Ground Water Association (NGWA), American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE), Florida Water Environment Association (FWEA), Florida Stormwater Association (FSA), and American Water Resources Association (AWRA). As part of the FSA Educational Committee, Mr. Drummond reviewed and provided comments on FSA's Stormwater Operator Manual.
Eric Strecker Eric Strecker, PE
Mr. Strecker, a principal water resources engineer based in Oregon, focuses on the design, monitoring, and evaluation of stormwater best management practices (BMPs), and development of major project and watershed master plans. For more than 20 years, Mr. Strecker 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 conducted applied national and local research studies for U.S. EPA, U.S. Federal Highway Administration, Water Environment Research Foundation, and the National Cooperative Highway Research Program, as well as state and local research efforts. With his colleagues, he has established the international stormwater BMP database hosted at www.bmpdatabase.org
Lisa Austin Lisa Austin, PE
Ms. Austin, a senior water resources engineer based in California, specializes in water quality and stormwater management. She has in-depth knowledge of both industrial and municipal National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (NPDES) permitting; municipal stormwater program planning and operations; stormwater best management practice (BMP) selection, design, and maintenance; and construction erosion control. Through her unique perspective gained from being both the regulator and the permittee, she has developed an understanding of the complex relationships between Clean Water Act regulatory programs such as the NPDES permitting program and Total Maximum Daily Loads (TMDLs), and other environmental regulatory programs such as the Comprehensive Environmental Response, Compensation, and Liability Act (CERCLA) and the Endangered Species Act. Ms. Austin is a member of the California Stormwater Quality Association (CASQA) Board of Directors. Her role includes working with fellow Board members in developing policies and positions concerning regulations, legislation, and litigation potentially impacting CASQA members.
Ken Suslio Ken Susilo, PE, D.WRE, CPSWQ
Mr. Susilo, a principal water resources engineer based in California, specializes in the application of innovative engineering design, hydraulics, and hydrology techniques to stormwater management projects. Mr Susilo's practice focuses on the use of statistical, analytical, and geospatial models for water quality, hydraulic, and hydrologic analyses and design. A major part of Mr. Susilo's work involves water quality and NPDES Phase I and Phase II permitting. Mr. Susilo's efforts concentrate on the development of multi-benefit, environmentally sensitive solutions to design and planning efforts, while cost-effectively leveraging leading-edge technologies to enhance the natural and built environment. He served on the ASCE Report Card subcommittees for Urban Runoff for Los Angeles County, Orange County, and the State of California, and served on the Board of Directors of the Urban Water Institute. Mr. Susilo is an active member of the California Association of Stormwater Quality Agencies Watershed Management Subcommittee, and chaired the Hydromodification Work Group. In 2006, he was recognized as the ASCE Outstanding Civil Engineer in the Private Sector by the Los Angeles Section, the Metropolitan Los Angeles Branch, and ASCE Region 9 (State of California).
Kim Williams Brandon Steets, CE
Mr. Steets is a senior water resources engineer based in California whose practice focuses on watershed, receiving water, and stormwater quality modeling; water quality monitoring plan development, implementation, data analysis, and reporting; and stormwater BMP selection and design. He has significant experience in conducting and managing large water quality modeling and monitoring projects to support NPDES permitting, TMDL implementation, stormwater quality management/planning, and BMP design.
Kim Williams Kim Williams, PE, CPSWQ
Ms. Williams, a senior water resources engineer based in California, specializes in stormwater quality compliance at a programmatic and project-specific level for both private and public sector projects. Ms. Williams' practice focuses on water quality issues, construction and permanent stormwater best management practices (BMPs), water quality monitoring techniques, and maintains a current understanding of storm water regulations. She has extensive experience in providing technical oversight of construction NPDES compliance at hundreds of sites throughout California and nationwide and has served as a principal investigator in developing a substantial revision to the California BMP Handbook (Construction) to be released by the California Storm Water Quality Association (CASQA).
