We provide answers and solutions to water management problems to ensure human safety, property protection, and aquatic ecosystem health. We also provide water resource assessment for government, First Nations, and community groups to promote grounded management decision-making.
Where we can help
Hydroelectric power and other industrial developments often have complex effects on stream and waterbody hydrology, hydraulics, water quality, and geomorphology. Through the latest scientific modelling and monitoring techniques, we can help you to characterize, manage, and mitigate these effects to balance the needs of the project, the environment, and other stakeholders.
What we offer
Ecofish’s success in water resource engineering lies in our highly qualified engineers, hydrologists, data analysts, and aquatic scientists, as well as specialists in hydrology, hydraulics, wetlands, and geomorphology.
Our combined skill set provides us with a broad perspective of the myriad of processes affecting water systems, which allow us to ensure the complete picture is considered when assessing a system. This diverse skill set is used to consider a problem from multiple angles to develop the best analytical strategy possible with the resources available.
Our team members all have a strong academic background, with numerous peer reviewed publications. With the support of NSERC, we continue to develop innovative solutions to complex hydraulic problems, and better designs for fish passage and habitat restoration features.
Our team works closely with our ecology department to characterize the physical processes and conditions that affect the quality of aquatic habitat. Our specializations include:
- numerical and empirical hydrological modelling
- diversion flow routing
- hydraulic geometry modelling
- stream temperature modelling
- low flow analysis
- flood frequency analysis
- flow metric analysis
- natural and artificial channel hydraulic modelling and design
- fish passage analysis
- fish habitat modelling
- floodplain mapping
- erosion modelling
- sediment transport modelling
- geomorphic assessment
- lake and reservoir hydrodynamic modelling
- wetland hydrological modelling
