Walter Hamilton, III

Engineer III, Fairfax County, Virginia
Mr. Hamilton has over 30 years’ experience in the field of erosion and sediment (E&S) control from both the planning and field implementation perspectives. He began his career in 1980 as a soil conservationist with the then USDA Soil Conservation Service, now called the Natural Resources Conservation Service. In 1985, Mr. Hamilton began his career with the Fairfax County Government as an E&S control specialist and was charged with the responsibility of overseeing the County’s E&S Control program during the time when Fairfax County was considered one of the fastest growing jurisdictions in the United States. During his 16-year tenure as the County’s E&S control specialist, Mr. Hamilton was influential in developing many program enhancements that are still being implemented today. He has garnered many awards and recognition as an erosion and sediment control expert, and he is a sought-after instructor and authority regarding erosion and sediment control matters at the local and state levels. Mr. Hamilton has a dual combined administrator certification from the Virginia Department of Environmental Quality for erosion and sediment control and stormwater management.
