His experience with dams is uniquely diverse and includes lakes, reservoirs, stormwater facilities, run-of-the-river dams, and categorized dewatering facilities. Brian’s knowledge of regulations, procedures, and agency personnel has made him a valued asset in developing the necessary steps to complete dam removal and modification projects. He has also developed dam removal and modification support services, including restoring the remaining riparian area, shoreline and streambank stabilization, and grade control.

As a Certified Floodplain Manager (CFM), Brian is involved with several dam-related initiatives involving removing or mitigating dam impacts due to downstream hydromodification and upstream nutrient attenuation. As part of a team at Geosyntec that has been actively assessing dam removal options, he is working to improve stream health and protect the water supply for local communities.

Throughout Brian’s tenure as a water-resources professional, he has presented on topics associated with dam safety, regulations, inspections, remediation due to sedimentation, and dredging. Brian’s peers recognized him for his watershed management and restoration work by receiving the Dick Hilton Watershed Award in 2017 from the Illinois Lakes Management Association (ILMA).
