He also serves as the assistant flood engineer for Minnesota and Iowa and performs as an expert in contract administration procedures, submittal reviews, contract modifications and negotiations.
"Scott's leadership in the Environment Management Program has set the standard division wide for his ownership and commitment to provide a quality product that has exceeded our customer's expectations," Tom Johnson, St. Paul District Eastern Area Office chief said in a statement.
