Water Resources

Water is the most important resource on our planet: it’s finite, non-replaceable and impossible to live without. Protecting this precious resource while harnessing its power and potential is one of our key capabilities. Our water resources engineers respond to and manage flood crises, harness the power of water for hydroelectric development, and manage stormwater for safe and effective urban design.


Rivers, lakes, wetlands, watersheds, groundwater – our hydrologists study water’s quantity, movement and distribution to help communities plan and protect for the long term. Our experts are experienced in a range of hydrologic assessment methods and approaches including:

  • statistical analysis
  • hydrologic modelling
  • water balance modelling
  • probable maximum flood studies
  • flood forecasting
  • watershed assessment
  • climate change assessment
