Christopher Davidson

Mr. Christopher Davidson, B.Sc., P.Eng. is a water resources engineer with interests in stormwater management, stream hydraulics, and the effects of climate change on these applications.  He graduated from the University of Waterloo in 2003, working first in the residential development industry before joining Golder in 2007.  He has been involved in a diverse range of projects; from design of SWM systems for commercial, mine, and landfill sites, to the modelling and design of flood protection following the 2013 Alberta floods, to the creation of water management software tools for communities in northern Ontario and Iqaluit.  He worked with climate experts at Golder to develop the stochastic Golder Climate Generator, used for generating synthetic climate data for future scenarios to map out potential failures in water management systems.  In addition to project work, Mr. Davidson is a guest lecturer on water permitting at U of T and promotes engineering outreach at local schools through PEO’s Engineers in Residence program.  He was the recipient of the Mississauga PEO Chapter’s Young Member Award in 2016.
