Your stormwater resource in the Pacific Northwest


Marx Environmental Consulting, LLC, (MEC) was established in 2013 and provides engineering and permit services for clients addressing stormwater and industrial wastewater issues. Owner Kurt W. Marx, P.E. has helped clients successfully manage their water-related challenges for 20 years in the Pacific Northwest. MEC’s approach is to merge the safety and proven designs of engineering with emerging and unique technologies and resources.


MEC offers services that are,


  • Personalized – As a small firm, you know who you will be working with.
    If partnering on a project, Kurt's network of firms comprises well-established professionals that he has worked with before. Services and contracting are flexible. He is comfortable crunching water data spreadsheets, collecting accurate field data in less than ideal conditions, or giving a presentation to dozens of your scientists and engineers.

  • Resourceful – Resourcefulness is a key aspect of MEC. You shouldn’t have to “re-create the wheel”.  When appropriate, MEC strives to help its clients use existing and available resources. Kurt’s consulting, academic, non-profit, government and business contacts in the world of stormwater, water quality, and NPDES permits brings added value to his clients.

  • Correct – MEC takes pride in offering the highest quality work. 
    We will help your organization achieve success in an increasingly stringent world of water quality permits and water scarcity. If your need is not a specialty of MEC, Kurt will find the correct resource for you.


Kurt has an M.S. in Engineering from the University of Washington,
and a B.S. in Environmental Engineering from Michigan Technological University. He is a registered professional civil engineer in the State of Washington. When not thinking about water, Kurt spends his time cooking, traveling, and being an animal advocate.

MEC often teams with these firms to meet all your project needs

First, thanks and congratulations on the Stormwater Engineering Conference last week. That was one of the better conferences I can recall attending, and was especially helpful to get a national perspective.”
