Kevin is trained in civil and environmental engineering with more than ten years of wastewater, civil engineering, and soils remediation experience. Originally with URS Corporation in Sacramento, he was involved with extensive soils remediation projects at McClellan Air Force Base. Kevin subsequently proceeded to found Environmental Planning & Design, LLC with Bill Wilson, and in 2004 founded EPD Consultants, Inc for engineering design services and EPD Construction, Inc. for construction services (“EPD”). As a principal engineer of EPD, he has successfully planned, designed, permitted, installed, and operated a wide variety of lake and decentralized, onsite wastewater systems, including an integrated stormwater and graywater reuse system at the Natural Resources Defense Council’s Robert Redford Building in Santa Monica. At this building, stormwater and graywater collected onsite are treated to remove all contaminants prior to being reused for toilet flushing and water-efficient irrigation. In typical systems designed by Kevin at many other projects, such as the Audubon Nature Center in Los Angeles and the Los Angeles Unified School District Clear Creek Campground in La Canada, all wastewater generated onsite is biologically treated prior to being recycled as subsurface irrigation. At Reseda Lake in the City of Los Angeles, the existing lake was retrofit with a treatment system based upon an extremely limited budget. Other accomplishments at EPD include development of an onsite wastewater maintenance company through EPD Construction, Inc., design and construction of onsite wastewater systems for Indian Gaming Casinos in California, as well as integrated stormwater, wastewater, and irrigation system planning, design, and construction throughout the Southwest.
