Company founders, Kristin Baksa and Breck Bowlin, formed Stormwater Solutions – USA, Inc in the fall of 2011.
As a civil engineer specializing in site design over the past 18 plus years, Breck became increasingly concerned about the poor designs and construction of pre and post-construction BMPs, storm water facilities and water quality devices. Kristin who brings 17 years experience in the environmental, safety and health business and who also spent 13 years as a science educator devoted to keeping students involved in the community shared these concerns. During the summer of 2011 they discussed ways to help provide solutions to these problems and decided to form a company dedicated to improving stormwater quality by emphasizing inspection and maintenance of storm water controls.
Helping clients maintain compliance with storm water regulations is essential to our mission. In addition, as we work to improve water quality throughout East Tennessee, we are committed to keeping Stormwater Solutions an active partner in community storm water initiatives.
