Water Resource Assessments

Managing Our Most Precious Resource

With climate variability continuing to impact water resources and operational integrity, water resource evaluations are more important than ever.

Our hydrologists, hydrogeologists, and water resource engineers help you select the most appropriate, environmentally friendly, and economically viable source. Some of our areas of expertise include:

  • Water resource planning and risk mitigation
  • Corporate and asset-level water strategy development
  • Hydrologic impact modelling and analysis
  • Water supply and storage optimization

Water Management Assessments

Water infrastructure should be built to last. We help our clients develop sustainable water supply and disposal solutions for their oil and gas, mining, industrial, or public sector projects.

We have experience across a range of ecosystems and climates and have the capability to not only assess the feasibility and build your regulatory applications but also design-build and operate a full suite of water resourcing intakes and infrastructure facilities.

  • Groundwater and surface water supply identification and evaluation (freshwater, saline and tertiary)
  • Groundwater assessments and modelling
  • Design services for groundwater well networks and riverbank filtration (RBF) intakes
  • Short- and long-term water license applications
  • Management and mitigation of water withdrawals
  • Water balance modelling and analysis
  • Watershed and basin-scale analysis and modelling
  • Hydrologic modelling of surface water sources
  • Infiltration galleries
  • Design services for surface water intakes
  • Groundwater well installation
  • Pipelines and Lay flats
  • Lagoons and reservoirs
  • In-stream isolation structures (e.g. cofferdam)
  • Pump stations
  • Caisson design

Additional Regulatory Support

Regulatory applications and permitting is often one of the greatest risks to project schedule. By engaging us in the early stages of your project, we help you anticipate and address application challenges.

Successful regulatory applications are often intertwined with feasibility and environmental assessments, stakeholder management, and proactive engagement with regulators. The services listed below can help develop a holistic view of your application. Follow the links to discover more.

Automated Regulatory Monitoring​

In some jurisdictions, costs incurred from in-situ monitoring and compliance requirements can now be reduced with automated regulatory reporting. Using our telemetry units, back-end information architecture, and expert knowledge of the regulatory process, you can:

  • Save time and resources on lengthy assessments & applications
  • Reduce application/inspection errors and standardize reporting
  • Constant resource monitoring for maximum operational uptime
  • Align with ESG reporting software

This revolutionary service is now ready for deployment and has been approved by the regulator. Contact us today to learn more and reduce your compliance costs.

ESG Reporting Consultants

ESG Support Services

Now more than ever, environmental, social, and governance (ESG) risks and opportunities must be considered at an early stage in project development. Several jurisdictions have already mandated climate disclosure, and it is anticipated to come into effect in Canada and the United States as early as 2023.

There also continues to be momentum in standardized global sustainability reporting that will have an impact on all industries. We are proactively monitoring the regulatory and reporting landscape so that your company provides ESG reporting that is comprehensive and accurate while ensuring it meets the most current regulations and standards. 

We offer a comprehensive range of ESG services in support of your regulatory journey.

  • ESG materiality assessments & benchmarking
