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

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.
