Maria Cahill, Green Infrastructure Consultant

Ok, you got me. There's no "us", just me. These pages are all about me, Maria Cahill. It just seemed simpler that way. Some folks say I'm going to have five employees someday, so keep checking back here!

I have 16 years' experience implementing low impact development practices on private and public new, redeveloped, and retrofit sites. Since starting my business in 2008, I have collaborated on green streets, rain gardens, porous pavements and more with private and public teams. I'm known for my creative problem solving, and have implemented a variety of innovative approaches to managing stormwater in urbanized areas including parking forests, the Stormwater Challenge Program, and the West Hills Innovative Stormwater Demonstration.

In addition to doing other cool things like implementing the first green street in the City of Tangent and developing a low impact development guidance template for Western Oregon, I've presented numerous workshops to a variety of stakeholders from seasoned professionals to homeowners on a variety of low impact development topics.

For information on my education and past work experience, please visit my LinkedIn page.
