WATER QUALITY MANAGEMENT
CCI’s environmental specialists are qualified and experienced as water quality monitors. Several of CCI’s field personnel are Qualified Aquatic Environmental Specialists (QAES). Since 2004, CCI has implemented water quality monitoring regimes for hundreds of watercourse crossings, from unnamed creeks to large rivers.
For any project, the social license is forefront and very much tied to the protection of rivers and water. CCI’s state of the art monitoring equipment and planning process ensures that when a project goes to construction that it can clearly measure and record electronically any issue that may arise that could possibly have an adverse effect on the water quality and/or its habitat. This system, working with the professional biologist on site, can clearly define the event and potential impact and provide solutions to mitigate the situation.
Provides guidance for regulatory requirements applicable to crossings:
- Transport Canada
- Navigable Waters
- Department of Fisheries and Oceans
- Provincial Government Agencies
Develop water quality monitoring plans. 24/7 monitoring through:
- Turbidity equipment (handheld to satellite tracked units)
- Conducting frac walks

- Daily client reports c/w historical data logging and photos
Frac-out plume modeling (one dimensional or two dimensional models).
- Fish rescue services (electrofishing)
- Full environmental inspection services
Prepare post-construction report and review with client.
Watercourse classification and habitat assessments.
Forest and vegetation management:
