Emily Scerbo, PE

Vice President

“Stormwater management is complex, and I take great satisfaction in demystifying it for my clients and helping them find customized and cost effective solutions. Working closely with clients to truly hear and understand their concerns and needs is pivotal to project success.”

Emily Scerbo, Vice President and Technical Director for Tighe & Bond’s Land Use Business Line, is undeniably a New England stormwater expert. She has been invited to participate in state initiatives such as developing the Metropolitan Area Planning Commission (MAPC) Stormwater Utility Starter Kit, and the Baystate Roads Creating a Revenue Stream for Stormwater Management state-wide workshop series.

Emily has worked with Massachusetts communities of all shapes and sizes to implement EPA’s General Permit for Stormwater Discharges from Small Municipal Separate Storm Sewer Systems (MS4s) since its inception in 2003. She is a trusted advisor to many communities because of her in-depth understanding of the Small MS4 program, and the fiscal and organizational challenges that municipalities face to implement EPA’s complex and evolving requirements.

Emily has worked collaboratively with stormwater managers, local staff and decision makers, and often stakeholder groups to tailor projects to their needs. She is passionate about identifying creative solutions to water resources challenges through improved stormwater management.

Life Outside of Work

In her spare time, Emily dusts off her college softball glove and coaches co-ed t-ball. She also enjoys hiking and biking the trails of North Central Massachusetts with her family. She recently was elected to the Massachusetts Rivers Alliance board of directors, and is the board’s only professional engineer.
