Steve Randolph PE. CFM. CPESC. LEED. GA
Assoc. VP, Regional Manager – Water at Horner & Shifrin, Inc.
Mr. Randolph started at Horner & Shifrin, Inc. in 1995 after graduating from Washington University in St. Louis with a degree in Civil Engineering and a minor in Environmental Engineering Science. In 2001, he received his MBA degree from Webster University. Mr. Randolph is also an active member of EWRI’s Chicago Chapter, a Certified Professional in Erosion and Sediment Control (CPESC) and a member of the Illinois Association for Floodplain and Stormwater Management. Mr. Randolph is the proud father of two grown children and he and his wife live in Naperville, Illinois. His interests and hobbies include travel, reading, and collecting baseball cards.
Gene Rovak PE. CFM. F.ASCE
Senior Project Manager at Horner & Shifrin, Inc.
Mr. Rovak is a professional engineer and certified floodplain manager with over 40 years of experience in all aspects of floodplain management. His work requires understanding of FEMA regulations and interpretation of FEMA Flood Maps (FIRMs) and Flood Insurance Studies (FIS). Mr. Rovak has extensive experience in Letters of Map Changes (LOMCs), particularly Letters of Map Revisions (LOMRs), which have ranged from single reaches along a channel to large areas affecting many map panels. Related studies have ensured that infrastructure improvements such as bridges or docking facilities would not cause increase in flood heights (“no-rise” studies).
Mr. Rovak’s experience has covered riverine flooding (river and creek channels) as well as level- pool environments (lakes and landlocked floodwater storage). He has performed hydraulic and hydrologic analysis of these systems working with a variety of computer models in the public domain such as Corps of Engineers and EPA, as well as proprietary programs such as ICPR and XP-SWMM. Mr. Rovak’s experience includes steady, unsteady, and network flow simulations.
