  • ecoY2® Series - GeoSmart Energy


    By utilizing environmentally safe, non-ozone-depleting R-410A refrigerant, the ecoY2® sets the industry standard in its class for performance, efficiency and quality. Additional features include X-13 5-speed ECM blower motors, optional domestic hot water generators, and microprocessor based controls with on-board diagnostics for maximum efficiency. Several decades of research, engineering advancements and manufacturing experience have come together to create the ecoY2® Series.

  • Flood proof wells


    VIQUA deals with contamination of groundwater wells occuring from both above and below the surface. Heavy rainfall, spring runoff, or flooding events can overwhelm even well-constructed, newer wells, and introduce surface water (such as agricultural run-off) into the aquifer below. If contamination occurs, VIQUA can supply both residential and light commercial ultra violet (UV) water disinfection systems, providing treated water without the use of chemicals.

  • Road runoff management


    Nilex is a leader in the geosynthetics industry providing innovative solutions to support the challenges of civil, resource and environmental construction projects. Since 1977, Nilex's engineered, technically advanced geosynthetic materials have provided customers with smart choices and proven alternatives to conventional construction practices for less money. Our smart, environmentally conscious solutions are used in road building, Mechanically Stabilized Earth (MSE) solutions for grade changes, erosion and sediment control, water management (including bioswales) and containment.

  • Flood hazard map


    Flood hazard assessment involves two key components: figuring out how much water is likely to flow down a river and second figuring out where that water is going to go. Assuming that data is available to help define water volumes and flow characteristics, calculating flood extents and flood depths is the easy part. Making useful, intuitive maps and other tools is the tricky part.

  • Fisheries adaptation


    For over 40 years, Hatfield Group has carried out fisheries management projects for both public and private clients across Canada and around the world. They regularly manage monitoring programs that assess the effects of development on fish populations and the suitability of fish for consumption by humans and wildlife. Whether establishing compensation habitat or studying the aquatic environment for signs of contamination, they have decades of experience that allow them to identify the best strategies for your project’s particular environmental needs.

  • ePulse® Pipeline Condition Assessment


    The ePulse condition assessment solution is the industry’s first approach that can identify the condition of both distribution and transmission mains, while simultaneously searching for leaks, without the need for large excavations or service disruptions. ePulse technology has simplified inspection and condition assessment of buried pipeline assets. Inspection and data collection does not require access to the inside of a pipe or extensive support from utility field crews.

  • Is Climate Change a Gender Issue?

    Many would say that global warming is the most serious environmental issue of the twenty first century. As a result of climate change, women have seen their workload increase in many activities which have traditionally been women's responsibilities. For instance, fishing has been made more difficult by the intrusion of salted water in fresh water systems. Fetching clean water and fuel has also become more difficult.
