Ganesh Krishnan Co-Authors The Military Engineer Stormwater Compliance Article

ATLANTA, Ga. — Ganesh Krishnan, PE, CPESC, co-authored the article "Stormwater Compliance for Air Force Bases," which was published in The Military Engineer Online. Other co-authors were: Robert Barrett, M.SAME, Chief of the Asset Management Division at Langley Air Force Base; Shawn Holsinger, PE, Client Services Manager of EM-Assist; and Russell Adams, Program Manager of Water Quality at Robins Air Force Base.

The article provides insight into Section 438 of the Energy Independence and Security Act of 2007 (EISA), which promotes "slowing down stormwater runoff and "infiltrating runoff into the ground" as two primary principles for stormwater management for new construction to comply with EISA. While Section 438 affects federal facilities in general, The Military Engineer article addresses Air Force properties. Ganesh and fellow authors share that in order for bases to fully comply, they will need a holistic, base-wide strategy.

Ganesh, an Associate located in Geosyntec's Atlanta Regional Office, has more than 14 years of experience as a design engineer in water resources and geoenvironmental engineering. His concentration is on the design, monitoring, and evaluation of stormwater best management practices (BMPs), and programmatic support for construction NPDES compliance. He has an MS in both environmental engineering and civil engineering from the Florida Institute of Technology. Ganesh also has a BS in civil engineering from Mangalore University.
