Ms. Paist-Goldman has 20 years of experience in water resource engineering with a particular focus in hydrologic and hydraulic modeling. She is an experienced modeler and has worked extensively on design and analysis using HEC-HMS, HEC-RAS, HydroCAD and XP-SWMM. Applications for her modeling expertise include wetland analysis, stream restoration, bridge repair and replacement, and dam repair, replacement or removal. Ms. Paist-Goldman has extensive expertise with stream stabilization and restoration and with dams including dam breach analyses and dam removal design. She has also prepared inundation mapping, emergency action plans, operation and maintenance manuals and dam inspection reports for low to high-hazard dams. Ms. Paist-Goldman is an expert at navigating regulatory framework for complex design. She has expertise in the fields of stormwater management, regulatory compliance, stream restoration, hydrology and hydraulics, wetland mitigation and wastewater management.
She served as principal engineer and director of engineering services at Princeton Hydro, LLC, based in New Jersey, where she managed a team of more than 25 engineering professionals specializing in natural resources management. Ms. Paist-Goldman’s attention to detail and creative eye lead to out-of-the-box solutions to complex stormwater, stream, wetland and wastewater problems. She has served on committees and she was an active participant in the preparation of stormwater ordinances and stormwater management plans. Throughout her career, Ms. Paist-Goldman has designed dozens of stormwater management projects with a focus on water quality – particularly in regard to TMDL compliance.
