As the zoning and stormwater officer at West Hempfield Township, Dwayne Steager knows a lot about watersheds and the dynamic intricacies of water systems. He’s been with the township for 15 years and not a day goes by that he isn’t drawing upon his watershed knowledge to benefit the township. Everything he does at the township, he says, requires an understanding of stormwater, from zoning and permitting to land development and the Municipal Authority.
Despite his deep knowledge of watershed dynamics, Dwayne wanted to “round out” his knowledge of stormwater issues. That’s why he joined the Lancaster Watershed Leadership Academy.
