Stephen Williams joins TFMoran’s Stormwater Department

Stephen Williams has joined our team as a Stormwater and Construction Inspector. Mr. Williams has a Bachelor’s degree in Mechanical Engineering from the University of New Hampshire in Durham. He has over 30 years of experience including soils testing, concrete and asphalt inspection and testing, monitoring infrastructure construction, water mains, sewer mains, and SWPPP Plans. He has also provided project management services for the NHDOT Bureau of Public Works, the Town of Hooksett, and numerous other communities in Southern New Hampshire.


TFM’s Portsmouth division, MSC, is providing SWPPP inspections for NHDOT projects in the seacoast region.

MSC, a division of TFMoran, is providing Stormwater Inspection services for several high-profile NHDOT construction projects, including the Little Bay Bridge in Dover/Newington for R.S. Audley, Inc. and the highway work on Route 4 and Route 16 for Severino Trucking Co. in the same area.

SWPPP Monitors duties include daily weather forecast monitoring and recording, pre-storm, post-storm and weekly SWPPP inspections, weekly erosion control meeting attendance including preparation and distribution of meeting minutes. In addition to these services, MSC is also providing turbidity monitoring of construction stormwater discharges during rain events, as well as the design and monitoring of flocculation treatment systems used to reduce turbidity in accumulated stormwater to ensure construction site stormwater discharges are within NHDES compliance limits.

Working closely with the NHDOT, NHDES and contractors in the interest of stormwater pollution prevention and erosion control, MSC’s monitors reports are issued within 24 hours of the time of inspection and include pictures of findings, comments, new action items and resolved action items.

NHDOT Specifications require SWPPP Inspectors for their projects to be certified by a third-party organization (Envirocert International) as Certified Erosion, Sediment and Stormwater Inspectors  (CESSWI) or Certified Professionals in Erosion & Sediment Control (CPESC). The inspection and monitoring duties are being performed by three MSC engineers; Jack McTigue, P.E. CPESC, Jessica Winston, CESSWI and Chris Gagnon, CESSWI.


TFMoran/MSC’s Jessica Winston Becomes CESSWI Certified Professional

Jessica Winston serves as a Civil Project Engineer in TFMoran’s Portmouth, NH office. She has been with the MSC division for 9 years and has a Bachelor of Science degree in Civil Engineering/Environmental Engineering from the University of New Hampshire.  This March Jessica passed the CESSWI (Certified Erosion, Sediment and Stormwater Inspector) exam, which addresses all aspects of providing complete inspections for erosion and sediment control and stormwater compliance. By passing the exam, Jessica has demonstrated she has the knowledge and understanding of documentation, communication, safety, the rules and methods of erosion and sediment control and stormwater control and management.

More and more construction projects are requiring CESSWI certificants to ensure that these projects meet the requirements of Federal, State and Local regulations including the US Environmental Protection Agency’s National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System. Certified Inspectors are recognized by state and federal regulators as qualified professionals in their field.

The non profit organization, EnviroCert International, Inc.® was established to provide standards in stormwater certifications. In addition to CESSWI, they also provide guidelines for the practice of Stormwater Quality (CPSWQ), and Erosion and Sediment Control (CPESC).  These certified professionals are also part of TFMoran’s staff.

The purpose of these certifications is to safeguard life, health, and property, and to promote the public welfare, as stated by EnviroCert International.
