Courses

Hydrogeology and Groundwater Management

We offer several courses in hydrogeology and groundwater management. The courses are tailored towards professionals who wish to have a better understanding of hydrogeological and groundwater management & related engineering concepts. We offer some of the courses through Engineers & Geoscientists BC (EGBC) and BC Water & Waste Association (BCWWA). We also offer courses directly to municipalities and private groups (on demand).

Introduction to Hydrogeology & Groundwater Management

November 28-29, 2019 in Burnaby

(BC Water & Waste Association)

News & Announcements

IAH Congress in Malaga

46th IAH Congress in Malaga, Spain

Ineke Kalwij of KWD will give a presentation at the upcoming IAH Congress in Malaga, Spain (September 22-27, 2019). She will talk about Managing Groundwater Resources: Case Studies from British Columbia, Canada.

Groundwater is an essential resource for many rural communities and municipal water systems in British Columbia. In British Columbia, after the Water Sustainability Act (WSA) came into effect (February 29, 2016), the need and requirement of (better) groundwater management has increased not only from a water allocation point of view but also from a water system planning point of view to ensure that future water demand can be met with the available water resource. Ineke will talk about the hydrogeology of the lower mainland, BC Aquifer Mapping System, and the use of SCADA, an integral tool for groundwater monitoring (long term trending, aquifer recharge / discharge trend, changes in well performance, and interpretation of well interference).
