Bob approaches dam safety, levee, and flood control projects from a risk management and risk reduction perspective. He notes that large-scale dam and flood control projects offer considerable benefits but require thorough and sometimes exhaustive engineering analyses to address and reduce risks.
Bob has more than three decades of experience in the water resources field and has spent the better part of that time designing and engineering solutions for dams and levees, flood control, river master plans, and stormwater master plans. He’s our Southwest Region practice leader for the Dams and Levee group, and he leads our dam safety engineering and design staff. His goal? Improved technical and design quality for Stantec’s dam safety discipline.
Focused on developing lasting client relationships, Bob has worked with Flood Control District of Maricopa County for more than 25 years on over 35 projects. This is a particularly personal relationship because of the area he works to protect—his community
When not in the office, Bob enjoys making presentations at technical conferences (USSD, ASDSO, AFMA), playing golf and racquetball, and travel.
