Greg Wilson

Greg has more than 31 years of experience in the areas of hydrology and hydraulics, surface water quality, GIS, limnology, and watershed and lake management planning, including 1W1P and Nine Element Plans. He performs watershed and in-lake water quality modeling, recommends management actions, and facilitates technical-advisory meetings for development of lake management plans. Greg has conducted water quality and water quantity monitoring and modeling and/or TMDL/WRAPS studies for nearly 100 lakes. He also leads design, sediment analysis, chemical dose determination, and/or alternative treatment options for internal phosphorus control in lakes and ponds. In addition, he assists with NPDES and wetland permitting, SWPPP development, and public education and outreach. He is a frequent contributor to water quality and stormwater management publications produced by the Minnesota Pollution Control Agency and is currently conducting research with the Minnesota Stormwater Research Council.
