Our integrated team of hydrogeologists, hydrologists, and biologists offers a broad range of expertise directly relevant to the B.C. Water Sustainability Act. Development of groundwater-based water supply systems for municipal, industrial, recreational, and agricultural clients is a major focus of our work. Our B.C., Canadian, and international experience gives our team a comprehensive understanding of various regulatory frameworks, and how best to apply appropriate solutions.
