Scott founded Sustainable Watershed Designs in 2007 to create a company focused on full water cycle design. The company, now doing business as Lotus Water, seeks out water resources and civil engineering projects that emphasize integrated water management solutions. This has led Lotus Water to be at the forefront of projects that reduce water consumption, re-use stormwater as a resource, or recycle wastewater. Scott’s experience includes urban watershed assessments, hydrologic and hydraulic modeling, rainwater harvesting, green infrastructure design, and triple bottom line capital planning for major cities. Scott’s recent work has focused largely on assisting the City of San Francisco in implementing innovative green infrastructure designs and stormwater management policies aimed at making the forward-thinking city one of the country’s leaders in water sustainability.
