Meet Scott and Craig

Scott Aspenlieder, Principal

Scott graduated from Montana State University in 2005 with a BS in Bio-Resource Engineering and has always been interested in water and irrigated agriculture, having grown up around them. He chose to be a water resources engineer because he wanted to stay connected to the agricultural community he grew up in and work with people that didn’t otherwise have a lot of professional resources.

While Scott doesn’t do much actual engineering anymore, he spends most of his time on the business and helping the team work through projects at a higher level and manages business operations, regulatory interface, public engagement and irrigation portions of the business. He loves working on public policy changes to improve communities and states, and helping industry get projects off the ground and through the permitting process. Scott values the collaborative and growth-oriented environment at Performance Engineering, where the team’s professional and personal growth is emphasized.

In his free time Scott enjoys spending time with his wife Heather and their three boys, traveling for sporting events, fishing, and golfing.
