Backed by the Center's scientific and engineering expertise, Kurt leads an initiative to evaluate and promote innovative technologies and practices around sustainable clean water in urban environments. The focus of this mission is to build and foster relationships with community partners of the South Puget Sound area, as well as regionally and nationally.

Prior to this role he was the lead scientist/engineer for the Center's collaboration with the Washington State Department of Ecologys Technology Assessment Protocol (TAPE) program for approving emerging stormwater treatment technologies.

Kurt has an M.S. in Environmental Engineering from the University of Washington (1999), and a B.S. in Environmental Engineering from Michigan Technological University (1996).
