W. Scott Gorneau, P.E.
National Manager of Stormwater Solutions, ACF - Convergent Water Technologies Alliance
As national manager of stormwater solutions for the ACF-CWT Alliance, Mr. Gorneau is responsible for offering innovative green infrastructure\low impact stormwater solutions that enable new applications and raise the bar on performance, cost effectiveness and verification. Mr. Gorneau previously served as regional vice president for FABCO Industries where he was responsible for engineering design, specification and installation of manufactured stormwater management systems. He earned a BS degree in Biological Systems Engineering and an MS degree in Agricultural and Biological Systems Engineering from the University of Nebraska-Lincoln which provided the necessary knowledge for him to launch his career into the technical sales and specified engineered products industry. He spent the subsequent time since graduation gaining experience and expanding his knowledge of the industry on a wide variety of civil and environmental engineering design projects for private and public sector clients. Mr. Gorneau is a registered professional engineer in Maine and New Hampshire, and he is a Maine certified stormwater inspector. He has been a member of the American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE) since 1999, serving as section president in 2014.
Dr. Robert M. Roseen, P.E.
Principal and Owner, Waterstone Engineering, PLLC
Dr. Roseen is a recognized industry leader in green infrastructure and urban watershed renewal, and he is the recipient of an Environmental Merit Award by the US Environmental Protection Agency Region 1. He consults nationally and locally on stormwater management and planning and currently leads one of the first-in-the-nation integrated planning efforts in coastal New Hampshire. He directed the University of New Hampshire Stormwater Center for 10 years and is well versed in the practice, policy and planning of stormwater management. Dr. Roseen has 20 years of experience in the investigation, design, testing and implementation of innovative approaches to stormwater management. His broad area of expertise includes water resources engineering, stormwater management, low-impact development (LID) design, porous pavements, nutrient and TMDL studies, stream restoration and erosion and sediment control. Dr. Roseen has led the technical analysis of numerous studies examining land use and climate change impacts on municipal flooding. He has participated in many significant and award winning green infrastructure projects.
Environmental Scientist at EPA Region 1
Mr. Tedder holds a masters degree in Geology from Boston College, specializing in surface water and groundwater contamination due to road salt application. He has more than 12 years of experience in hydrology and hydrogeology in the public and private sectors where he has worked developing public water supplies, tracking surface water pollution and, most recently, regulating surface water contamination due to stormwater. Mr. Tedder has been at EPA Region 1 for seven years and currently serves as the lead permit writer for the Massachusetts Municipal Separate Storm Sewer System (MS4) permit and the Massachusetts Department of Transportation Separate Storm Sewer System (TS4) permit.
Rob Woodman, P.E.
Senior Stormwater Engineer, ACF
Mr. Woodman serves ACF as senior stormwater engineer. His skill set bolsters ACF’s engineering technical support service allowing ACF to better serve their clients and customers with value added, project specific and engineering technical support. Mr. Woodman earned a BS degree in Civil Engineering in 2004 from the University of Wollongong in Wollongong, Australia. His schooling provided the necessary knowledge for Mr. Woodman to launch his career into site civil design and the ever-trending green infrastructure industry. He spent the first 10 years as a design and project engineer for a private engineering consulting firm, gaining experience and expanding his knowledge of the industry on a wide variety of civil and stormwater engineering design projects for private and public sector clients throughout New England.
