It is with heavy hearts that we say goodbye to a friend, colleague, and mentor Dale Scott.
Dale worked in the Manitoba water industry for over 4 decades in numerous different roles and for numerous different organizations. He may be most noted as working for the City of Selkirk for 17 years where he implemented numerous projects and efficiencies.
Dale was a very active member of the MWWA and sat on the Board of Directors for 9 years. He started on the Executive as 2nd Vice Chair in 2007, moved to Vice Chair in 2009, and was the Chair of the Association from 2011 – 2013. He was the recipient of the MWWA Lorne Sayer Award in 2015. The Lorne Sayer award is presented to an individual in recognition for faithful and meritorious service to Water and Wastewater industry.
Dale worked with ABC to help develop the standardized tests for all operators in numerous different categories (WWC, WD, WWT and WT).
Dale always was firm on ensuring that operators in Manitoba were thought about and ensured that the smaller systems did not get ignored. He always kept things interesting and lived by the motto; Make sure to leave it better than you found it!
The Board of the MWWA sends its deepest sympathy to Dales family, friends and colleagues; He will be profoundly missed.
