Mark Origer, PE
Mark is driven to improve efficiency for ISG’s rural partners. With extensive experience working alongside ISG engineers, Mark applies his unique hydrologic and hydraulic modeling expertise to examine alternative practices and select the most advantageous option tailored to benefit each individual project. Mark is responsible for water resources, water quality, watershed management, and environmental review with a focus on hydrologic efficiency.
Coordinating across disciplines with fellow civil engineers, designers, and environmental scientists at ISG, Mark’s leadership and design experience is built on many years of field technical work in water resources and wetland management, written report and permit preparation, staff supervision, and policy development and implementation. Able to communicate with regulators and landowners in a straightforward manner, he builds trust, identifies the best practices for client needs and budgets, and carefully considers land use priorities. Mark applies these skills to implementing regulatory programs and providing facilitation and conflict resolution services for complex and controversial environmental and land use conflicts.
