An angler, kayaker and scuba diver, Peter Nicol loves water. It’s no wonder that for a career, he’s focused on solutions to ensure availability of this critical, life-sustaining (and fulfilling) resource. As Jacobs’ Global Director for Water, he leads a team of more than 6,000 visionaries and doers to develop innovative, sustainable and comprehensive solutions for tomorrow: A modern storage system for California’s scarcest and most valuable resource. A sewage management system in Hong Kong that converts sludge into electricity. Protection for our world’s coasts against rising oceans and variating weather. No matter the challenge, Peter and the Jacobs team work with clients and partners to make smart, sustainable decisions at all points in the water cycle—from water supplies to treatment, conveyance, wastewater treatment, reuse and return to the natural environment. Peter holds a bachelor of applied science degree in geological engineering and applied earth sciences from the University of Toronto.
