Staff Bios

Project Partners specializes in identifying, recruiting, and securing specialized individuals for assignment as adjunct staff with public agencies. Haimann Engineering specializes in helping clients craft effective programs for compliance with stormwater and other environmental regulations. Together, we are proposing an approach for NPDES compliance under the new permit and with the adoption of the WMPs and EWMPs where:

  • One or so staff would be retained by the City as adjunct staff at a rate that fits City financial requirements.

  • The staff would be supplemented as needed with Haimann Engineering expertise to help guide NPDES program implementation to be as cost-effective as possible while meeting permit, WMP or EWMP requirements. 

This provides the City with exceptional value – use of contract staff for the time needed to implement the program supported by specialized expertise. 

We have provided brief bios and resumes of some staff we have available. We have many more to draw from and can provide their information at the City’s request. The brief bios are pm this page with resumes following.
