Stone Welcomes Water Resources Engineer Matthew Schley
Stone Environmental, a 100% employee-owned environmental science and engineering firm based in Montpelier, Vermont, is excited to welcome Matt Schley, EIT to Stone's growing water resources team as a Water Resources Engineer.
Matt joins Stone with over five years of experience in both urban and natural water resources projects, including stream restoration, floodplain/wetland reconnection and restoration, watershed assessment, and stormwater management. After earning an M.S. from Dartmouth College in Earth Science, Matt applied his hydrology expertise as a consulting engineer in the Chesapeake Bay region, designing stream, floodplain, and wetland restoration projects, as well as stormwater management practices. More recently, as a hydrologist with the U.S. National Park Service, Matt helped design, permit, and construct natural resource restoration and stormwater retrofit projects—both in the National Capital Area and for national water resources projects through the NPS Water Resources Division.
"We're thrilled to have Matt join us," said Dave Braun, Director of Water Resources Management at Stone. "His experience compliments the work we're doing now and increases our capacity to provide ecosystem restoration and stormwater management design and implementation services for our partners in Vermont and New Hampshire. His experience in the Chesapeake Bay region, with its nutrient ‘pollution diet’ and intense focus on shoreline, floodplain, and stream restoration projects, really rounds out our water resources management team."
At Stone, Matt is already involved in a number of stream restoration and stormwater retrofit projects, including a preliminary engineering and design study for the removal of the Hands Mill Dam in Washington, Vermont and the final design of three stormwater treatment practices at the Richmond Elementary and Camels Hump Middle School in Richmond, Vermont.
