Lucas Carr, P.E.

Lucas Carr is a Senior Engineer based in Missouri with more than 12 years of experience focused on geotechnical and geoenvironmental engineering for earthen water- and waste-containment structures including dams, levees, coal combustion residuals (CCR) impoundments, tailings storage facilities (TSFs), deep cutoff walls and barriers, and natural soil slopes on contaminated and non-contaminated sites.

Lucas Carr is a Senior Engineer based in Missouri with more than 12 years of experience focused on geotechnical and geoenvironmental engineering for earthen water- and waste-containment structures including dams, levees, coal combustion residuals (CCR) impoundments, tailings storage facilities (TSFs), deep cutoff walls and barriers, and natural soil slopes on contaminated and non-contaminated sites.


Lucas helps clients with geotechnical investigation programs, characterizing the strength and hydraulic parameters of soil and rock; evaluating seismic hazards; seepage and slope stability analysis and mitigation design; designing geotechnical instrumentation systems; developing design drawings; preparing specification and cost estimates; performing value engineering; providing bid review support; and providing construction quality assurance (CQA) services through the completion of project construction. He also has experience providing litigation support services and supporting clients during regulatory agency negotiations and enforcement action. Lucas has provided these services for a total of 78 coal combustion residual surface impoundments and landfills, 15 dams, and 6 levee systems.

Lucas is adept at developing solutions for complex geotechnical and geoenvironmental solutions for his clients under challenging technical, regulatory, and schedule constraints. He has applied these skills to save clients millions of dollars and reduce construction cost and risk on a diverse array of projects including developing an innovative, low-cost ground improvement program to support the closure of 600-acre industrial waste impoundment in a coastal area, developing a preliminary design for a mine tailings dredge cell over sluiced tailings, designing seepage remediation systems for multiple dams and levee systems, stabilizing several landslides, and designing nearly two miles of deep cutoff walls and a dewatering system to support a deep excavation as part of the largest brownfields redevelopment project in North America.
