Water Resources & Hydraulic Engineering

Water plays a vital role in our society. While it is important to identify and mitigate potential risks like flooding and erosion, it is also important to protect and maintain our access to potable water, ways to generate hydroelectricity and support industries that rely on water. Water-related issues lie at the heart of industrial and urban development, energy production, environmental conservation, climate change adaptation and sustainable development.


Our specialists understand the complexity and subtleties of dealing with water-related issues. In order to support our clients throughout their project lifecycle—from studies to contracting to expertise—WSP offers services using a multidisciplinary approach leveraging years of experience and expertise in all fields of water engineering.

  • Studies (feasibility studies, regulatory studies, diagnostics and development planning, management strategies, etc.)
  • Prime contracting (engineering from preliminary concepts to detailed designed, preparation of plans and specifications, assisting prime contractors with consultations and company selection, overseeing work, etc.)
  • Expertise (hydrology, hydraulics, modelling, hydrometrics)

Clear, concise communication is at the core of how we work. We communicate clearly and concisely with clients to ensure that proposals fit their needs and that the project schedule remains on track.

Our areas of expertise include:

  • Hydrology
  • River hydraulics
  • Urban/industrial hydraulics
  • Environmental hydraulics
  • Ice hydraulics
  • Hydraulic structures
  • Bridges/linear infrastructure
  • Coastal engineering
