Over the past two years, I have watched the storm water and erosion control industry ebb and flow as it grows in size and importance. In the spirit of growth, I will be handing the baton of managing editor of Storm Water Solutions off to new and competent hands as I move on to other opportunities.

Despite any transitions in leadership, SWS will continue to enthusiastically produce high-quality current content and events. As 2019 nears its end, you will notice even more recently developed digital initiatives at SWS.

Keep an eye out for our latest, special web-exclusive features on top of the case studies you rely on in the print publication. In addition, don’t forget to register for the 2019 SWS Conference & Exhibition, which will be held this November outside Chicago. You also can register for the Infrastructure Virtual Summit for educational webinars on infrastructure projects stretching across the municipal water and wastewater, transportation and storm water and erosion control markets.

This industry was humbling and educational, and it left me with lasting relationships.

Little did I know that “combined sewer overflow” and “low impact development” would become regular phrases in my lexicon, or that I would enjoy them this much. I am grateful to have served this industry and look for- ward to seeing how it continues to evolve.
