American Rivers seeks an Urban Stormwater Associate Director (USAD) to join our Clean Water Supply program, with a mission of reducing municipal impacts on river water quality. The USAD will advance American Rivers’ Clean Water Supply program work in Pennsylvania, the Delaware River watershed and Pennsylvania’s rivers of the Chesapeake Bay. The Clean Water Supply program’s work in these locations champions green stormwater infrastructure (GSI) and improving state stormwater management policies. The USAD will work to increasingly improve GSI practices, policies and water infrastructure funding. Specifically, this position will help urban municipalities advance GSI in planning and practice by leveraging and advancing the Municipal Separate Storm Sewer System (MS4) permits of the Clean Water Act.  To achieve this work, the USAD will collaborate with partners, coordinate with local, state, regional and national leaders, and engage with communities in a variety of capacities and projects to ensure healthy rivers can provide clean water for everyone. The USAD will conduct local outreach, convene partner meetings and deliver presentations throughout the study area to help achieve these goals. The USAD reports to the Director of the Clean Water Supply program and assists the director, as needed, with administrative tasks including grant writing and reporting.
