WSA owns and operates 69 dams in the province, ranging in size from large, like Gardiner Dam that forms Lake Diefenbaker, to small earth dams and in-stream weirs. These dams provide water supplies and recreation and also mitigate the effects of flooding. As a structural design engineer you'll provide professional engineering services for the planning, coordination, design and construction of hydraulic structures owned and operated by the Water Security Agency. You will evaluate the safe load carrying capacity of spillway bridges, perform inspections and design structural rehabilitation on a variety of hydraulic structures, including riparian facilities, outlet capacity upgrades, hydraulic gates, bulkheads, stoplogs, storage facilities, pumping stations, water control structures and other structural components. During the design and rehabilitation of structures, you will review documents and drawings prepared by engineering consultants, write and manage contracts, write specifications for procurement, and manage tendering. Providing technical guidance to colleagues on the structural aspects of their work will be another facet of your job.
The successful candidate shall possess a degree in Civil Engineering or a similar engineering discipline, a licence to practice professional engineering from the Association of Professional Engineers and Geoscientists of Saskatchewan (APEGS) and 4 years of related experience.
Note: Applicants with the required education but lesser experience are encouraged to apply as they may be considered for an Engineer-in-Training position at a lower management classification. Applicants with more than 10 years directly related experience and the required education may be considered for a Senior Engineer position.
