Key Projects

Project manager for the preparation of private subdivision design plans for submission into Town Planning Departments of Town of Brookhaven, Town of Islip and Town of Smithtown along with concurrent design submissions to Suffolk County Department of Health and Suffolk County Department of Public Works.

Project Assistance with the development of All Hazard Mitigation Plans for the Inc. Village of Patchogue, Inc. Village of Manorhaven, Inc. Village of Pelham, Inc. Village of Mount Kisco and the Inc. Village of Mamaroneck. Key portions of Hazard analysis required running ArcGIS with the FEMA HAZUS-MH, a natural hazard loss estimation methodology, to determine risk assessment and potential impacts and costs from hurricanes, floods and earthquakes.

Prepared numerous water distribution system design plans and specifications for many New York State municipalities totaling over 200 miles of water main. Designs included new subdivisions, transmission mains, plant site piping, asbestos replacement, bridge crossings, river crossings, fire service lines, pipe jacking designs under State, County and Town roadways including backflow prevention design. Locations of work include the following municipalities; Shelter Island Heights POC, West Neck Water District, Inc. Village of Greenport, Riverhead Water District, Suffolk County Water Authority, St. James Water District, Smithtown Water District, Dix Hills Water District, South Huntington Water District, East Farmingdale Water District, Inc.

Project manager for Site-Wide Annual Groundwater Monitoring Report for Brookhaven National Laboratory. The annual project since 1997 includes reporting data on more than 300 on and offsite monitoring wells, producing groundwater and plume mapping covering 8 square miles of lab property, preparing comprehensive figures, tables and report representing the overall condition of the groundwater at and adjacent to the lab. Utilizing GIS as a data management tool proves to be the most efficient, cost effective approach in meeting Department of Energy scheduling and providing electronic data back to the lab in the most useful format.
