Hydrogeology

Hydrogeology experts to meet all planning, operational and regulatory compliance needs

Hydrogeology is the science dealing with the occurrence and distribution of groundwater. Groundwater is a part of the hydrologic cycle and contributes to headwaters of creeks, stream baseflow, supports terrestrial and aquatic ecosystems, and is an invaluable resource for drinking water supply. For the sustainable extraction and protection of this resource, management measures need to be undertaken with due understanding of the hydrologic cycle, the land use within watersheds and the groundwater-dependent natural ecosystems.

Environmental acts, regulations and policies on the sustainable extraction of groundwater and the protection of groundwater resources have been maturing through collective efforts of major stakeholders, including municipalities, provincial and federal governments, the private sector, and universities. Furthermore, with continuous population growth and increased urbanization, the protection of this key resource is of prime consideration. Our team of experts in the fields of Hydrogeology, Environmental Engineering and Environmental Science has worked with all levels of government and the private sector, both within Canada and internationally, and takes pride in providing solutions based on the principles of strong science, regulatory understanding and efficiency.
