Ms. Paist-Goldman has more than 20 years of experience in the fields of wetland and stream restoration, stormwater management, regulatory compliance, hydrology and hydraulics, dam safety, and wastewater management. Prior to founding Rippled Waters Engineering in 2018, Ms. Paist-Goldman served as Principal Engineer and Director of Engineering Services at Princeton Hydro. Her attention to detail and creative eye lead to out-of-the-box solutions to complex stormwater, stream, wetland, and wastewater problems.


Throughout her career, Ms. Paist-Goldman has designed dozens of projects
with low impact development techniques, green infrastructure, and with a
focus on water quality – particularly in regard to TMDL compliance. She has designed rain gardens, cistern systems for water re-use in the form of landscape irrigation, bioretention islands, manufactured LID devices, and constructed wetlands. She has developed projects with goals of zero discharge upon completion, groundwater recharge to address aquifer deficits, and retrofits to reduce water quality impacts on Category One waters and EV streams.
