A UWM alumna and local engineering guru noticed the lack of proper stormwater management in the Milwaukee area, and has built a successful business to fill this void. She now helps municipalities, businesses and even homeowners manage the water that flows so abundantly across the region.

Carrie Bristoll-Groll, who earned her bachelor’s degree in civil engineering from the College of Engineering & Applied Science in 1994, is the principal civil engineer and CEO of Stormwater Solutions Engineering. She founded the firm in 2002 to specialize in the treatment, storage and safe passage of stormwater.

Before starting her own business, she worked for the cities of Milwaukee and Brookfield as a stormwater civil engineer.
