AECOM is proud to be a gold sponsor at the Canadian Water Resources Association 2022 National Conference in Canmore, Alberta on June 5-8, 2022. We join CWRA in celebrating their 75th Diamond Anniversary and our commitment to promoting responsible, innovative and effective water resources management. As speakers and moderators in the technical program, our team members look forward to sharing our knowledge.

With expertise encompassing all phases of the water cycle, AECOM develops strategic long-range solutions to protect the natural environment and provide sustainable water for generations to come. We help overcome increasingly complex issues involving water shortages, stormwater, flooding and climate change to develop resilient communities.

Watershed and Ecosystem Management

Sustainable watershed and ecosystem management involves providing adequate water resources for the aquatic ecosystem while protecting against flood damage, erosion, water quality and many other impacts. Through the application of adaptive management principles in the planning and design process, we integrate science and management, delivering the most targeted solutions possible. Our staff analyzes engineering and construction feasibility as well as the regulatory, ecological, social and economic impacts of potential strategies. We specialize in applying the most innovative field, data, and GIS-based analyses and decision-making processes for resource protection and use. AECOM’s green infrastructure philosophy is simple—develop effective, replicable, resilient and maintainable designs that are informed by the needs of stakeholders and our clients.


Recent studies have confirmed that the majority of our human population is concentrated along or near coasts. AECOM helps communities and businesses understand, maintain and design sustainable coastal environments throughout the world. Our coastal engineering experts use high-tech models and monitoring devices to analyze the forces affecting coastal environments including sea level rise, tides, erosion, waves and storm surges. This knowledge provides the basis for innovative designs for sustainable coastal structures and nature-based applications for coastal areas.


Stormwater management is an increasingly important yet complex task. To balance competing goals, an array of regulations has been, and continue to be, developed. AECOM staff are skilled at handling the complexity of regulatory and legal issues and all technical aspects of stormwater issues. We provide all phases of environmental and engineering expertise related to stormwater—from study, site assessment, planning, environmental and other regulatory permitting - to design, construction and training for ongoing monitoring and operations and maintenance of facilities.
