As the lead for Stantec's Institute for Water Technology & Policy, Art’s position involves developing strategies and providing solutions for complex wastewater treatment challenges. His role? To connect our Company’s global resources in process design to promote collaboration and deliver comprehensive knowledge and expertise to our clients. He is also responsible for pushing scientific research that enables technology adoption in the worldwide marketplace.
With almost 30 years of experience, Art is considered a champion on the global stage of wastewater treatment. He is helping to change the paradigms of the wastewater industry by transitioning from disposal facilities to resource recovery and product factories. According to Art, “the future of municipal utilities requires a great degree of sustainability and resiliency,” and that is achievable by embracing new ways of thinking about treatment and adopting new technology.
When he’s not leading global practices, Art’s a musician focused primarily in folk and blues traditions. He owns ten guitars, but he never seems to have the time to play them all! He also enjoys the outdoors, hiking, and snowshoeing the beautiful Colorado mountain ranges with his wife, friends, and Golden Retriever—Max.
