Mr. Fersner joins Bowman from Woolpert, Inc., where he assisted coastal county and municipal governments in the development and implementation of their stormwater management programs, ordinances, design manuals, IDDE manuals/procedures, system inventories, utility fees, annual reports and watershed master plans. He has spent significant time tracking, commenting on and providing input to DHEC on the recently adopted SC Construction General Permit (CGP) and Municipal Separate Storm Sewer System (MS4) Permit.
