The American Society of Irrigation Consultants has announced two new fellows, Brian Vinchesi with Irrigation Consulting, Inc., in Pepperell, Mass., and Brendan Lynch, with Lynch & Associates, LTD., in Annapolis, Md.

Vinchesi and Lynch, who worked together at one point in their careers, join a group of irrigation practitioners recognized for outstanding contributions to the profession of irrigation consulting.

An irrigation design engineer, Vinchesi also is an Irrigation Association certified golf course, commercial and residential designer; Certified Landscape Water Manager; and certified landscape and golf irrigation auditor. He is past president of the American Society of Irrigation Consultants and the Irrigation Association, and past chair of the Irrigation Foundation. He currently chairs the Irrigation Association Standards and Codes Committee and the ASIC Conference Committee.

Vinchesi teaches irrigation design and water management seminars throughout the U.S. and Canada, and writes a monthly column for Golf Course Industry magazine. Notable irrigation consulting projects include:

  • National Mall, Washington DC
  • Central Artery (Big Dig) Parks, Boston, MA
  • Shadow Creek Golf Course, North Las Vegas, NV
  • Central Park, New York, NY
  • Brown University, Providence, RI
  • Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Cambridge, MA
"It's a great honor to join the current group of ASIC Fellows who all have been practicing irrigation consulting for many years," Vinchesi says. "Fellow is a professional distinction that is coveted by members of the Society, and I am humbled to have been selected to this group."

Lynch, a dedicated irrigation mentor, educator and leader, has more than 40 years of irrigation experience throughout the greater Washington DC area. His professional philosophy demands critical attention to project site details of plant and soil types, slopes, exposures, utility and so forth, with a strong emphasis on project master planning and the incorporation of technologically advanced products and features.

Lynch's commitment to water and energy conservation in his business practices and his mentoring of up-and-coming irrigation and green industry practitioners has greatly advanced ASIC and the irrigation industry over the decades. Notable projects include:

  • The White House, Washington, D.C.
  • Washington Monument Grounds, Washington, D.C.
  • Air Force Memorial, Arlington, VA
  • Howard Hughes Medical Institute, Ashburn, VA
  • Columbus Circle Reconstruction, New York, NY
"My initial reaction to being named FASIC was to reflect on the eight previous recipients of this honor,
all of whom I have known and respected," Lynch asserts. "I actually never dreamt of being considered
for this distinction."
