Ted Kratschmer

About Ted

Ted is an environmental scientist with diverse experience in water quality monitoring, data analysis, and environmental permitting/compliance.  Ted has quickly evolved his expertise in Nutrient Assessment and Reduction Plan (NARP) compliance working with many wastewater treatment plants and publicly owned treatment works (POTWs).  He is an expert in designing and managing complex environmental and water quality monitoring programs to capture critical datasets and guide informed and cost-effective decision making.

Prior to joining Northwater in 2022, Ted worked over 10 years for an academic river research center, managing operations, writing and managing grants, collecting field data, and translating scientific concepts to a non-science audience. Ted has worked closely with many NGOs, and state and federal agencies, especially while working on a program supporting nutrient loss reduction efforts of the federal and state Mississippi River/Gulf of Mexico Hypoxia Task Force.

Ted lives in St. Louis, Missouri with his wife and daughter. He is a river rat and a lifelong outdoorsman, spending much of his free time recreating on the Mississippi River- hunting, fishing, trapping with his dog, Smokey.

Our Team

Northwater has quickly become a trusted advisor and partner on many projects. They draw from their diverse work experiences to help you build a successful project from start to finish. What we noticed early on – and why we keep coming back to Northwater – is their extremely high standards for themselves and for your project – no matter how big or small, they will help you make it the best it can be. They are also really nice people and fun to be around. It’s been a great partnership!
