Water Resource

Water resource engineers - civil engineering

Role Model(s)


Water resource engineers are involved in:

  • Monitoring water quality
  • Managing water treatment plants to ensure proper water filtration
  • Developing new technologies such as desalinization equipment to make salt water drinkable for ocean communities
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.

Native water resource engineers give our people the expertise needed to understand government reports about contamination sources and move forward on recommendations. With an understanding of modern science and respect and knowledge for the land, water resource engineers from our communities can help avoid ground-water contamination and play an integral role in ensuring that everyone in the community stays healthy.
