As a lead for Stantec’s Maine-based environmental services team, Nathan coordinates a diverse workload of everything from marine ecology, fisheries biology, and fish behavior to aquatic habitat restoration and water quality.
With his expertise in aquatic biology, Nathan manages teams of scientists, engineers, and legal strategists for environmental impact assessments, compliance and permitting, and environmental remediation projects. Many of Nathan’s projects include natural and social aspects such as endangered species, wetlands, wildlife resources, historic and archaeological resources, surface and groundwater quality, and land use. He also has particular expertise in the the EPA’s cooling water intake rule, or section 316(b).
Some of his most significant projects include permitting and design of Massachusetts' first desalination plant, NPDES compliance monitoring for the Taunton Municipal Lighting Plant, and over 300 scientific assessment dives for freshwater and marine ecosystems.
