Water Resource

Water resource engineers - civil engineering

Water Resource engineers protect water supplies and make sure that development does not disturb natural processes and water tables. They help find pollution, control flood damage, and resolve conflicts over water reserves.


Water Resource engineers:

  • Monitor water quality
  • Make sure that our water is safe to drink so we do not get sick
  • Create new technologies that will allow people who live near salt water to drink that water

In your community

The human body can last weeks without food but only days without water. Water is our most precious natural resource. Too many First Nations communities have been without safe drinking water for too long.

Water resource engineers help our people understand what is making our water sources unhealthy to drink; they also help the community to come up with solutions to solve these problems.
