Christopher Dacey, M.Sc., REP

Technical Expert, Senior Hydrogeologist

Christopher addresses and resolves a wide range of environmental challenges on behalf of industry-leading mining, industrial, government, and commercial clients. These clients benefit from both his extensive boots-on-the-ground experience and his strong analytical expertise. He also brings a dedication to integrity, technical excellence, and knowledge-sharing to all his projects.  

With his deep experience in hydrogeology and hydrology, Christopher understands the complex challenges that each of these entities face in sustainable water management and use. He knows that water stress and risk are existential threats to businesses, economies, governments, ecosystems, people, and cultures, and so he approaches each engagement with the sensitivity and technical rigor it deserves.

“Water has a duality, as both a critical resource and causative agent, with unique uncertainties, risks, and management challenges. I find that empathetic listening, along with agile and collaborative science and engineering, builds capacity and minimizes risk so that clients, stakeholders, and the environment can benefit.”
