Stantec Senior Tunnel Engineer in London, Ontario

Senior Tunnel Engineer - ( 230003EQ )

Our team provides a new path towards water sustainability with solutions that allow for the reuse and conservation of this precious resource. Working throughout the hydrologic cycle, we make sure the appropriate quality and quantity of water is where it should be and available when it’s needed. Our experts lead their fields and guide our work with scientific rigor, an innovative spirit, and a vision for growth. Every day, we help communities improve their water efficiency and protect their water resources for future generations. By 2025 we’re hiring 2,000 people (like you) to join our team.
