Buchart Horn announces the hiring of Tom Jackson, PE, PhD, as chief engineer in the firm’s Civil/Stormwater Division.
Dr. Jackson brings to the firm nearly 40 years of experience working on water resource and mining projects in the United States, Canada, and Latin America. He has been involved in all phases of project development, from preliminary feasibility studies through design and construction. His expertise is in the area of hydrologic and hydraulic modeling, including the design of sanitary and stormwater collection systems, culverts and highway drainage, and hydrologic studies for watershed yield, stormwater management, and risk-based flood control studies.
“Tom’s years of diverse experience are a real asset to our team,” said Scott Russell, PE, senior vice president of Buchart Horn’s Water Resources Division. “He has a significant amount of experience in the hydraulics and hydrology field from engineering projects in a wide variety of locations, scales, and hydrologic environments. We will utilize his expertise to provide technical oversight and high-level QA/QC in support of our civil/storm projects.”
Russell added, “Tom has his PhD in hydrology and he worked on the early development of DEM-based (digital elevation models) hydrologic modeling, so he has a particularly good understanding of the models. Now as our engineers are using these models, Tom can help them develop a deeper understanding of how they are working. That’s the level of expertise we bring to the table.”
BH’s Water Resources Division provides water and wastewater engineering, environmental and natural resources planning, stormwater design services, and soils and groundwater investigations.
