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.

Hydrometric Surveys

Our team uses a variety of tools and techniques to uncover the information needed to engineer all types of water resources projects. Using the latest technologies, we can monitor water levels and substrates, measure the thickness of ice and determine how fast water moves.

Our water resources engineers and technologists are skilled at carrying out a variety of hydrometric surveys and other monitoring activities:

  • bathymetric surveys
  • water level monitoring & profiling
  • acoustic doppler profiling & velocity measurement
  • flow measurement
  • sediment sampling (suspended & bedload)
  • substrate typing
  • river ice thickness measurement
