Scott has over 30 years of experience in the fields of civil and environmental engineering. He has worked primarily in the areas of waste management and municipal infrastructure design, completing projects on behalf of municipal, industrial, institutional, federal and international sector clients. Scott’s experience in the identification and evaluation of municipal waste management system options is extensive. He has provided expertise on solid waste management studies and engineering designs for over 75 Canadian municipalities. As part of these projects, Scott typically evaluated the performance of existing infrastructure, identified necessary management system upgrades, and ultimately completed designs for facilities including transfer stations, recycling depots, composting facilities and landfills (natural attenuation and composite-lined facilities).

Recyclable Materials Processing Alternatives Review - Winnipeg, MB

With an existing services contract nearing expiry, the City of Winnipeg retained Dillon to identify options to process materials collected by their curbside single-stream recycling program. Following the development of a 20-year material quantity and quality projection, a number of alternatives were evaluated, including establishment of a transfer system with export outside the region and the development of a new 100,000 tpy facility within the City.

Wastewater Treatment Facility - Amherst, NS

Wastewater Treatment Facility - Amherst, NS

Beginning with its founding in 1764, Amherst, like many Canadian communities, discharged its municipal wastewater untreated to nearby watercourses. For many years, the town’s raw sanitary effluent discharged to a series of outfalls along the Amherst Marsh, with the flow proceeding to the LaPlanche River and ultimately the Bay of Fundy. Efforts to address the town’s wastewater treatment requirements extend back to 1979. Following Dillon’s preparation of the detailed design and tender documents and the selection of Brycon Construction Limited as the general contractor, development of the $11 million facility was initiated in June 2010, with the official opening taking place in October 2012. This project received the Lieutenant Governor’s Award for Excellence in Engineering from Engineers Nova Scotia in 2014
