Andrew C. Weaver, P.E., F.ASCE, who has worked in the field of hydrology and hydraulics for 30 years, has been elevated to the status of Fellow by the ASCE Board of Direction.
Weaver’s current years in private practice have been as both a stormwater-design and municipal engineer, and for 16 years prior he worked in the public sector. This was as an assistant county engineer and a water resources engineer, both for Lancaster County, PA. While employed by Lancaster County he was in charge of the county stormwater management program, administering State and County grants and working closely with staff of the Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection to keep the county in compliance with state law.
During these public-sector years, he worked with State and private agencies and academia in various initiatives to reduce pollution and flooding originating in Lancaster County. He became interested in watershed modeling in 1995, while working on the watershed models required by the Pennsylvania Storm Water Management Act. He wrote a Visual Basic “front end” for the TR-20 computer program which was used in the Lancaster County watershed modeling effort and by several other counties in Pennsylvania.
Weaver, a member of the Association of State Floodplain Managers, continued his interest in watershed modeling after returning to private practice in 2012. In 2016 he began publishing the results of the modeling with a case study in ASCE’s Journal of Hydrologic Engineering.
He obtained a bachelor degree in civil engineering from Drexel University, and is a Certified Floodplain Manager.
