About Seth Brown
Seth’s is Principal and Founder of Storm and Stream Solutions, LLC. Prior to February, 2015, he was the Water Environment Federation’s (WEF) Stormwater Program and Policy Director, which landed him squarely in the middle of a dynamic field representing one of the leading water organizations in the world. This caps a 20-year career in the water sector in areas ranging from fluvial geomorphology to technical training to policy / legal aspects of the water sector. While covering a wide array of areas and issues, Seth’s passion is in the stormwater sector. His 15 years in the private sector has focused on design, analysis and modeling of natural water systems – stream assessment / restoration, watershed management, GIS services, development and delivery of technical training focused on erosion and sediment control (E&S) as well as post-construction stormwater management.
Over the last 5 years, Seth has added to his background the dimension of policy in the stormwater, Clean Water, and water resources space. Specifically, he tracked legislative and regulatory changes in the industry and provides technical input through his own background and through the facilitation of information dissemination from experts in the field. Critical legal rulings were also tracked, as they may impact current and future aspects of stormwater management and other related fields. He has spoken at numerous conferences and events, and written articles in various technical and policy-focused publications, such as the Bloomberg News Daily Environment Report and the International Journal of Sustainable Tropical Design Research and Practice. He has participated in events focusing on stormwater and water financing on the White House campus, and regularly meets with top-level EPA staff and officials.
In his capacity as the WEF Stormwater Program and Policy Director, Seth led WEF’s stormwater program by working with WEF members and others in the stormwater community to identify technical needs in the field and work to develop programming and products to meet these needs. He engaged in partnerships with outside groups on collaborative efforts to further the stormwater profession and topic. This position also involved tracking upcoming Federal legislative and potential regulation changes relevant to the stormwater and wet weather community as well as providing general policy support on water sector issues. He now has transitioned back into the private sector, but still lends support to WEF’s stormwater program as a Senior Stormwater Advisor on key technical and policy issues in a part-time role.
