With more than two decades experience directing and leading civil and environmental engineering projects with multidisciplinary teams, Nuss brings project and construction management understanding for delivering infrastructure to local communities. Outside of large municipal projects, his experience includes small-diameter water and sewer pipe rehabilitation, new water transmission main, sewage lift station, water booster station, and rehabilitation of water and sewer treatment plant projects.
“We’re thrilled to have Stephen join our Pacific Northwest team,” said Clint Rogers, Senior Principal and Regional Business Leader for Water. “His experience and understanding of municipal water needs will bolster our already solid presence in Washington to deliver an even stronger service to our clients.”
Nuss, who spent 15 years with the Anchorage Water and Wastewater Utility, was the Engineering Division Director when a magnitude 7.0 earthquake struck north of Anchorage, Alaska, in 2018. Under his leadership, all water and wastewater treatment plants and major facilities were inspected within 24 hours of the earthquake. Once emergency repairs were completed, he oversaw the development of permanent repair projects and FEMA applications for funding.
Nuss serves as a Public Agency Peer Review Committee Member with the American Society of Civil Engineers and is a member of the Project Management Institute, Water Environment Federation, and American Water Works Association. Nuss is a Registered Engineer in Alaska, Idaho, and Washington.
