Alex Lucado

Alex is a licensed water resources engineer with over a decade of experience in the fields of stream restoration, hydrologic & hydraulic modeling, storm sewer & culvert design, floodplain modeling, stormwater management and dam safety compliance. His design approach intertwines these different elements with site opportunities and constraints to create sustainable and impactful solutions.

He has led stream restoration efforts in both urban and rural watersheds utilizing natural channel design techniques. Alex relies heavily on site-specific hydrologic, hydraulic and geomorphological data to develop restoration designs that are uniquely adapted to their environment. His stormwater management experience includes the design of underground pipe detention systems, detention & retention ponds, dry swales and level spreaders. Alex has assisted multiple private and public dam owners in achieving compliance with Virginia dam safety regulations. His experience in this field includes the development of inspection reports, operation & maintenance certificate applications, dam break inundation zone studies and emergency action plans. Alex enjoys being involved throughout the life cycle of a project, from the initial field work and data collection to construction administration and post-construction monitoring and inspections.
