(Greene Township, Pike County, PA)
Project Manager for the preparation of an update/revision to the Township’s Subdivision and Land Development Ordinance.
(Schuylkill Township, Chester County, PA)
Project Manager for the engineering evaluation of the site-wide stormwater management system based on as-built conditions for a 219-lot single-family residential subdivision which has experienced excessive stormwater-related roadway flooding, basin sedimentation, and swale erosion during construction. Performed field inspection and monitoring of existing conditions to document the performance of the existing drainage and detention systems, performed engineering analyses to determine the hydraulic adequacy of the existing system, and evaluated the modification of detention basin outlet structures and other improvements to ensure post-development as-built basin discharges would be reduced to pre-development conditions.
Borough of West Chester, Chester County, PA
Project Engineer for a comprehensive stormwater management planning study for the Borough of West Chester, Pennsylvania. Developed the hydrologic and hydraulic computer models, prepared the stormwater management plan, and recommended alternative structural and non-structural watershed-wide and site-specific stormwater management measures. Performed preliminary engineering design and cost estimates for recommended bridge and storm sewer system improvements. Installed the computer model on the Borough’s computer system, instructed Borough personnel in the use of the computer model, and prepared a stormwater model operations manual.
Pennsylvania Department of Transportation, Montgomery County, PA
Performed hydrologic computer analyses of stormwater impacts for an environmental assessment study of the proposed U.S. Route 202 reconstruction between Paoli and King of Prussia, Pennsylvania.
Schuylkill Township, Chester County, PA
Project Manager for the evaluation of existing roadway pavement conditions along four roadways in a single-family residential subdivision. Coordinated core borings at selective locations along the roadways and associated laboratory testing to identify pavement course type and thickness.
