MassDEP Announces New Wetlands & Waterways Director & Formal Change to Organization Structure

Posted January 30, 2019 by

This message below comes from Doug Fine, Assistant Commissioner for Water Resources at the Mass. Department of Environmental Protection.

In August 2018, I wrote to you to tell you about some planned organizational structure changes in MassDEP’s Bureau of Water Resources (BWR).  At that time, I also told you that BWR would be posting a vacancy announcement to hire a new Director of Wetlands and Waterways, and that our new BWR organizational structure would take effect upon filling that position.

I write today to announce the great news that on Tuesday, January 22, 2019, Stephanie Moura will be joining MassDEP as our Director of the Division of Wetlands and Waterways.  The Division of Wetlands and Waterways includes our Wetlands Program, Chapter 91 Waterways Program, and our 401 Dredge and Fill Program.  Also effective on January 22nd, Lealdon Langley formally moves over to be the Director of the Division of Watershed Management.  The Division of Watershed Management will include the Wastewater programs (NPDES, GW/Title 5/Re-Use, Wastewater Operator Certification/Training), the Water Management Act (WMA) program, and the Watershed Planning program (surface water quality standards, surface water quality monitoring and assessment, nonpoint source pollution, and TMDL programs).

Ms. Moura brings to this important position an extensive policy and science background, and outstanding experience engaging stakeholders.  Ms. Moura was the founder and Executive Director of SeaPlan (formerly known as the Massachusetts Ocean Partnership).  At SeaPlan, she worked at the forefront of ocean planning, helping to establish and advance best practices in that emergent field. Prior to SeaPlan, Stephanie worked at MWRA where she coordinated project review, stakeholder engagement, and environmental permitting for MWRA’s Combined Sewer Overflow control program.  She holds a Master’s Degree from Tufts University Urban & Environmental Studies Program and a Bachelor Degree from the University of California in Environmental Studies.  Stephanie’s office is at MassDEP’s Boston Headquarters office at 1 Winter Street.   Her contact information will be Stephanie.Moura@mass.gov, 617-654-6612.

I am very excited that Lealdon will now be leading our re-structured Division of Watershed Management (DWM).  The programmatic grouping in DWM reflects the significant nexus between the wastewater and WMA programs and our Watershed Planning programs.  BWR has utilized a similar organizational structure in the past, and having these work units grouped together enhances our ability to provide cross-program coordination and strengthens inter-program communication.   Lealdon will continue to work out of our Boston office at 1 Winter Street, and his contact information remains unchanged (Lealdon.Langley@mass.gov; 617-574-6882).

Please join me in congratulating both Stephanie and Lealdon in their new roles.
