Wrap-up, Discussion and Evaluations Matt Johnston, UMD CBPO & CSN Speaker Biographies The Chesapeake Stormwater Network (CSN) is an organization whose mission is to improve on the ground implementation of more sustainable stormwater management and environmental site design practices in each of 1300 communities and seven states in the Chesapeake Bay Watershed. The Network is coordinated by Tom Schueler and Cecilia Lane is located in Ellicott City, MD. Tom has more than 30 years experience in practical aspects of stormwater practices to protect and restore urban watersheds. As executive director of CSN, Tom works on a number of projects in the Bay including the Chesapeake Bay Stormwater Training Partnership, which provides webcasts, workshops and on-line training modules to train engineers on new practices. Tom also serves as the stormwater technical coordinator for the EPA Chesapeake Bay Program. Cecilia joined the Network in 2012 coming from the Center for Watershed Protection where she served as a Watershed Technician for 3 years working on stormwater management issues and specifically retrofitting. At the Network, Cecilia is heading up several tasks on the Chesapeake Bay Stormwater Training Partnership including developing training content on LID Maintenance and Retrofitting.

Joe has worked in various capacities in both the public and private sector. Much of Joe’s work over the years has focused on developing technical implementation guidance and training. Joe started his career as a consultant in the DC metro area after graduating from the Catholic University of America with a BS in civil engineering. Matthew Johnston is a Faculty Extension Assistant in the University of Maryland’s Department of Environmental Science and Technology. In this extension role, Matt serves as the Chesapeake Bay Program’s Non-Point Source Data Analyst, working directly with jurisdictions across the watershed to ensure that implementation work is credited by the Bay Program’s modeling tools. Matt is also responsible for gathering and analyzing new data that can be used to inform the Bay Program’s modeling tools from the urban stormwater and agricultural sectors.
