The role of the Technical Director is to identify opportunities for efficient and effective best management practices (BMPs) at a watershed scale in Lancaster County, PA, and facilitate collaborations with a sense of urgency to accomplish water quality improvements associated with those BMPs. The position will focus on driving implementation of Lancaster County’s Countywide Action Plan (CAP), specifically to go above and beyond required practices for nutrient and sediment reductions in multiple prioritized catchment areas. Within these catchments, the Technical Director serves as the key leader for leveraging collective grant dollars, pushing the permit process, outreach to landowners if necessary, tracking and verifying the work done by boots-on-the-ground partner organizations, and establishing landowner agreements or contracts to accomplish priority projects. The Technical Director does not duplicate or replace existing technical expertise at engineering firms, but rather advances the shared goals of the Lancaster Clean Water Partners by building collaborative capacity as a technical liaison when working with municipal or land development partners (design, permit paperwork, municipal ordinance and MS4 expertise, etc). The Technical Director will be responsible for collaborating with on-the-ground restoration partners in addition to driving success for deliverables and funding. This is a new position funded by a grant award from the National Fish and Wildlife Foundation.
