Mike Rolband, President of WSSI, accepting award from HBAV's CEO Mike Toalson

On June 27, the Home Builders Association of Virginia (HBAV) recognized Wetland Studies and Solutions, Inc. (WSSI) as the 2010-2011 Associate of the Year at the HBAV Annual Convention, held in White Sulpher Springs, West Virginia. This is the second time that WSSI has been honored with this award (previously awarded in 2000), which is described as one of the HBAV's most coveted titles and is presented annually to the Association's "most valuable and most contributing" members in the past year.

Mike Rolband and the WSSI team were recognized for their collaboration with the HBAV and Governor McDonnell's office to formulate a balanced response to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency's mandated Total Maximum Daily Load (TMDL) regulations. WSSI's contributions included the proposition of a watershed implementation plan and stormwater management regulation as possible alternatives to the strict TMDL mandates, which will greatly impact the future of the development community.
