The Stormwater Solutions Louisiana Team

Mario Pacetti

General Manager/Owner


Mario started his career in the restaurant business and worked as an executive chef in San Francisco, California for more than 12 years. Upon leaving the restaurant business and returning to Southwest Louisiana in 2007, Mario worked as an equipment operator on some of Louisiana’s largest pipeline projects. He has worked for Blake Hines as a Safety Coordinator and Fleet Manager for almost five years before he gained specific training from the National Stormwater Center as an Stormwater Inspector and SWPPP and BMP designer. Thus, Stormwater Solutions Louisiana was founded out of necessity and has grown into Southwest Louisiana’s go-to company for SWPPP’s, site preparation, retention pond stabilization, silt fence, pre-construction videos and other erosion prevention and site stabilization.

Mario and his wife Chelsea reside in Moss Bluff with their son Mac.
We are a full-service company that treats every project as if it was our own.

Blake Hines

Owner


For more than 15 years, Blake has been building a reputation in the Lake Charles area as the leading utility contractor, providing water, sewer and drainage systems to municipalities and large residential developments. Blake started out as a laborer, working his way up into supervisory positions in the construction field, then moving into an inspector/coordinator position. Now, Blake owns his own company, Blake D. Hines, Inc., building water delivery systems and trenchless technologies. Blake’s company has provided utilities for large projects such as SHAW SMS, L’Auberge Casino and Resort, Golden Nugget Casino Hotel, the Port of Lake Charles, Chennault International Airport and Lake Charles Regional Airport.
