Meet Paul Mueller
In October of 2018, Paul Mueller joined the board of the Great Rivers Chapter of the International Erosion Control Association. Where he will serve a three-year term helping in planning seminars, workshops, and conferences to promote education in the storm water field.
Mr. Mueller is an Erosion Control and Storm Water Inspector with the Department of Community Development for St. Charles County, Missouri. He conducts inspections at construction sites and storm water facilities in unincorporated St. Charles County in the rapidly growing St. Louis metropolitan area.
Paul’s experience with storm water began in the early 70’s on the family farm in northeast Iowa, where his farther, a county soil conservation district board member, was the first in the area to use conservation minimum tillage in their farming practices. The farm also implemented crop contouring, terracing, strip-farming, and waterway programs to protect the storm water leaving the farm. His professional career in the storm water field began when he started working with the Missouri Department of Natural Resources in the early 90’s. He conducted inspections and enforcement activities of land disturbance and industrial storm water sites; he was also involved in water quality and fish kill investigations. During that time, he worked with EPA Region 7 inspectors on several joint inspections on land disturbance sites. In 2016, he became the chief erosion control and water quality inspector for St. Charles County. Mr.
Mueller has as a Bachelor of Science degree from Iowa State University. He is a Certified Erosion, Sediment and Storm Water Inspector (CESSWI). Mr. Mueller was a revision team member for the third revision of the Missouri and Kansas "Protecting Water Quality Guide." He has participated on committees in the revision of several of Missouri’s land disturbance and general storm water permits.
Mr. Mueller is active in his home community. He is a Fire District Board Director and Lieutenant with the local fire district, where he is a state certified instructor in firefighting and hazardous materials. He is the local volunteer Emergency Management Director and is the county Disaster Action Team leader for the American Red Cross.
