Princeton Hydro President Gives Keynote Address

Princeton Hydro President Geoff Goll, P.E. gave the keynote address to kick-off the University of Wisconsin-Madison‘s Master of Engineering Management (MEM) 2017 Residency for 1st and 2nd-year students.

As a 2013 graduate of the MEM program and a leader in the industry, Geoff was invited to give the presentation and offer to students his perspectives, insights and advice on how to transition from being a technical expert to a role in leadership and management.

A personal message from Geoff:
“I was very honored to present to the students and faculty of the MEM program, as they are a prestigious group of professionals that represent many sectors in the engineering industry. The MEM program provided me with the tools to develop as a manager and leader at my firm, and I was very glad to be able to give back by sharing my experiences. I was also very excited to share the story of the firm’s history, which Dr. Stephen Souza, Mark Gallagher and I built from a small 7-person firm started in Steve’s attic, to the multi-state, nearly 50-person firm we are today.”

The UW-Madison College of Engineering ranked in the Top 20 Online Engineering Management Degree Programs. This 30-credit hour, cohort-style program is designed for mid-career engineers, focusing on how to strengthen the skills and develop the knowledge needed to lead organizations, teams, and resources in the engineering field. Each summer, students are required to participate in a weeklong residency course on the Madison campus to conclude summer coursework and lead into the fall courses.

Green Infrastructure Planting Projects

The Princeton Hydro team has been busy this summer installing over 1700 plants at three of the company’s green infrastructure stormwater management project sites.

First, team members finalized the planting of two rain gardens located at Clawson Park in East Amwell, NJ. They also installed plants in a renovated detention basin located at the West Amwell Municipal Building. Finally, together with members of the American Littoral Society team, the team finalized the planting of an expanded rain garden and a newly constructed bio-infiltration planter box at Toms River High School North, Toms River, NJ. All three projects are 319(h) funded projects.

Everyone dug-in, got their hands dirty and the payoff to all of this planting is less runoff and less pollutant loading to our streams and rivers!
