Finding adequate, reliable water supplies and managing water resources is a complex challenge. These water supply and management needs result from new industrial development, increasing population, changing water use patterns, evolving regulatory requirements, new environmental issues, climate variability and, more recently, long term climate change. Golder provides solutions to these challenges with the services of experienced engineers and practical scientists with a wide range of expertise from civil engineering and biological systems to sophisticated modelling of physical processes.

We serve municipalities, industry, mines and urban developments. We specialize in solving complex water management issues and regularly deal with instream flow needs, preservation of aquatic habitat, minimizing and mitigating environmental impacts, whether these issues are the result of climate change or new developments.
