About McDonald Morrissey Associates
McDonald Morrissey Associates (MMA) was founded in 1990 by Michael McDonald and Daniel Morrissey. Before co-founding MMA, Mr. McDonald spent more than 20 years working as a hydrologist for the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) at offices in Maryland, New Jersey, Michigan and at USGS headquarters in Reston, Virginia. Mr. McDonald served as the Groundwater Specialist for the northeastern region of the USGS, and he developed the groundwater model MODFLOW - the most widely used groundwater model in the world. Prior to founding MMA, Mr. Morrissey worked for the U.S. Geological Survey in Utah, Maine and New England where he served as Chief of the New Hampshire/Vermont District of the Water Resources Division of the U. S. Geological Survey.
