SOLitude Lake Management Welcomes Environmental Scientist John Phelps
January 27th, 2012
SOLitude Lake Management, an industry leader in lake and pond management, fisheries management and related environmental services for the mid-Atlantic and surrounding states, is pleased to welcome John Phelps, Environmental Scientist, to their staff. A welcomed addition to their ever-growing presence in Pennsylvania and the Delmarva Region, John joins the SOLitude team as the Regional Manager for the Delaware, Eastern Pennsylvania and New Jersey and will be based in Avondale, PA.
John Phelps has more than a decade of experience with Water and Land Management throughout the tri-state area. After graduating from Indiana University of Pennsylvania with a Bachelor’s Degree in Environmental Planning, John went on to serve as the Environmental Wetland Specialist for Mercer County New Jersey’s Mosquito Control Division. While there, John managed the Division’s water-management program undertaking multiple stormwater management enhancement projects, including fish stocking and beaver-control projects with NJDEP Fish & Wildlife and working with various Home Owners Associations to resolve poor-drainage issues. In 2006, John moved on from his civil servant duties to become an Environmental Scientist/Pennsylvania Sewage Enforcement Office in the private sector. John furthered his professional training by completing the Rutgers University Wetland Delineation Program and the Penn State Hydric and Advanced Soil Courses. John worked on major land-development projects involving stream realignments, which required United States Army Corps of Engineer Joint Permits, macro invertebrate studies and wetland mitigation. John has also been a team member for Rare, Threatened and Endangered Species Surveys, like the Bog Turtle and Spadefoot Toad, and has conducted many wetland delineations as well as local, state and federal environmental-impact permit applications.
Just prior to joining SOLitude, John managed Stormwater Facility Compliance Programs for JCM Environmental and then for Landmark Engineering, two leading environmental and engineering companies in Delaware. Spotlight projects include sediment forebay installation to modify an existing basin, sand filter and bio-retention basin remediation and 2-acre mitigation installation.
