As a member of the Washington Stormwater Technical Resource Center, he provides assistance to industrial and municipal stormwater NPDES permit-holders.
Kurt earned a B.S. in Environmental Engineering from Michigan Technological University (1996) and an M.S. in Environmental Engineering from the University of Washington (1999). Prior to joining the Center, Kurt was a consultant for over twelve years, focusing on water treatment and water quality and flow monitoring.
When not talking about stormwater, Kurt enjoys spending time with his wife and three dogs, cooking, traveling, and supporting animal welfare causes.
