BOSTON, Ma. — Geosyntec is pleased to announce that Steve Roy,LEED AP, and Andrea Braga, A.M.ASCE, have published the article "Saving Silver Lake" in the February 2009 edition of Civil Engineering, a top trade magazine published by the American Society of Civil Engineers.

In the article, Steve and Andrea share their story of collaborating with Wilmington, Mass., to improve the water quality of Silver Lake, a key recreational amenity in the town. The town, including its citizens, participated in and implemented several features that are part of low-impact development (LID) to collect and treat stormwater before it enters the lake. Wilmington's actions to save Silver Lake are actually part of a larger effort to restore the health of the environmentally-challenged

Ipswich River in northeastern Massachusetts. Geosyntec was a lead consultant for the Silver Lake LID project.

Steve has over 27 years of professional experience in the field of environmental program management and administration specializing in water resources management, stormwater management, and environmental impact assessment. Andrea is experienced in the applications of civil engineering and water resources engineering, including permitting, design, and construction of stormwater management controls. Steve is based in Geosyntec's Boston office, and Andrea is in the Brookline, Mass., location.
