This professional yet fun young company was established in 1997 as a consulting firm to provide expertise in the field of geomorphology with an emphasis on the application of fluvial geomorphology. The company has gained a solid reputation for “giving reliable insight into fluvial processes that is rooted in current scientific understanding and providing viable solutions to watercourse concerns with the aim of promoting long- term stability and protection of the environment”. While applying the principles of fluvial geomorphology to various projects, contributions made by other disciplines (e.g. water resource engineers, biology) are recognized, respected, and integrated wherever appropriate.

This organization has completed work on more than 300 watercourses in Ontario and Northeastern USA, for which various aspects of fluvial geomorphological investigations have been applied. Typical projects have included subwatershed studies, geomorphologic assessments of channel stability and erosion, stream rehabilitation and stabilization work with a special focus on improving aquatic habitat, natural channel design, planning exercises, and contributions to policy development.

In addition to providing consulting services, the firm strives to remain current with the scientific literature, contemporary models, and understanding or developments of geomorphologic processes. This is accomplished through membership in various geomorphologic or related organizations and regular reviews of scientific literature. The company is viewed as a thought leader in their industry and is looking for someone who will complement their team and remain current in the industry.
