Lillian Furlow joins TTL to lead environmental operations in Atlanta

Environmental consultant Lillian Furlow, PG, has joined TTL’s Atlanta office as our new vice president/environmental operations.

A native of Georgia and Emory University graduate, Lillian is a trailblazer in the environmental consulting industry. Inspired by her geologist father, who introduced her to the wonders of biology, archaeology, and paleontology, Lillian was the first woman – and second person overall – to graduate from Clemson University’s prestigious hydrogeology program, earning a Master of Science degree in 1994.

Since then, she’s built an almost 30-year career as a division/operations leader, principal project manager, and project delivery manager, overseeing more than 700 multidisciplinary environmental and engineering projects with revenues exceeding $100 million for public and private clients alike.

“I think big,” Lillian said, “and I plan to grow an empire.”

Throughout her career, Lillian has helped a national railroad client navigate environmental compliance regulations to gain residential acceptance. The result was a project that led to the construction of intermodal facilities and an increased use of railroad transport to reduce highway tractor-trailer traffic.

She’s also overseen the largest groundwater contaminant plume site in Alabama through years of litigation, depositions, and testimony, and went on to see that the strategy, remediation system performance, and safety conditions remained in compliance with state regulations.

“I’ve always loved science,” Lillian said, “and I love to mentor, inspire, and share my passion with staff.”

In October 2022, TTL made a concerted effort to bring its comprehensive suite of integrated infrastructure solutions to the Atlanta metro area, and TTL Vice President/Regional Manager Keith Reaves, PE, said recruiting Lillian was crucial to the firm’s planned growth efforts in this market.

“I think Lillian brings a unique perspective to our environmental consulting services group,” Keith said, “and I know her diverse project experiences and zeal for working with new partners will elevate TTL in the marketplace.”
