As part of an exploration program for tantalum and niobium, baseline environmental monitoring was completed to support an Environmental Impact Assessment submission to the British Columbia Environmental Assessment Office. Associated Environmental (AE) conducted the surface water quality and hydrology components of the baseline assessment. For three years, AE operated four hydrometric stations and collected water samples from 14 locations to help evaluate whether any potential hydrologic and water quality changes could occur as a result of future production.
Associated Environmental was a partner in providing a Water Quality Monitoring Course for Daylu Dena Council. The goal of the week-long training was to empower First Nations to conduct environmental monitoring for contaminants in water.
The Calgary Zoo was inundated with water during flooding in 2013 in Calgary, AB. Associated Environmental (AE) was part of a team to design a flood protection plan for St. George's Island, where the zoo is located. AE's contribution and modelling results helped determine the effectiveness of various engineering solutions and to define what would be required to protect the zoo from future flood events.
Associated Environmental completed an environmental assessment of the sewage infiltration pit in Ross River, YT. The project was conducted in preparation for decommissioning of the pit, which is being replaced with a new wastewater facility.
AE has a strong record in hydrogeology, hydrology, aquatic ecology and water management. As water and earth sciences are at the core of our expertise, AE’s water and earth science personnel have extensive experience developing, managing and protecting groundwater and surface water resources. We use our modelling, technical and analytical skills to provide focussed and practical solutions to a full spectrum of water related issues.
