Marcel Young-Scaggs, PE

Water Resources Engineer

Marcel joined Inter-Fluve in 2020 after working with the Maine Department of Transportation as an assistant engineer. While his primary role was designing and engineering highway construction projects, “what really piqued my interest was improving design crossings that benefited a variety of wildlife – not just fish,” says Marcel. Several of the projects involved working with the US Army Corps of Engineers and others to integrate habitat connectivity into the design of culverts and crossings, and this interest in restoring habitat connectivity eventually brought him to Inter-Fluve.

Based in our Damariscotta, Maine office, Marcel’s work at Inter-Fluve includes a variety of tasks, from topographic surveys and hydraulic modeling to project management and construction oversight. Although most of Marcel’s work is in the Northeast, his expertise in crossing design and experience with transportation engineering mean that he is often called in to work on projects across the country that require working around road insfrastructure. Marcel has also found a new passion in restoring heavily polluted rivers and lakes back to systems that are usable for fish, people, and other animals and plants. It’s a noble goal, made ever more relevant with three daughters in tow.
