Scientific expertise to improve water quality

For over three years, our team of scientists has been evaluating and recommending improvements to the water treatment systems of 130 municipalities in Quebec, affecting nearly 1.5 million Quebecers. We also conduct pollution source tracking and water quality monitoring.  

With the collaboration of our partners, we are working to improve water quality in the watersheds of the rivers of the Ottawa, North, Mille Îles, Châteauguay, Missisquoi Bay, Bécancour, L'Assomption and Richelieu. 

Three interrelated services, a multitude of applications

Our approach

Personalized counseling

Each project is unique. That's why we offer support at every stage, from identifying priority interventions to implementing solutions. We also provide the necessary training for your organization's leaders. 

Collaborative support

A project often brings together several stakeholders. We are committed to maximizing the impact of the project by presenting key results and providing training and awareness activities.

Philippe Maisonneuve

Chargé de projet et biologiste

Philippe Maisonneuve holds a master's degree in fluvial ecology from the Université de Montréal. He participated in three years of sampling aboard the research vessel Lampsilis of the Université du Québec à Trois-Rivières.

He has developed extensive field experience, project logistics, data analysis, and knowledge of emerging issues related to water quality and aquatic environment integrity. He conducted an environmental assessment for the city of Trois-Rivières to map and budget a plan to analyze the impacts of untreated wastewater discharges on receiving environments. His expertise in aquatic ecology allows him to investigate the impacts of pollution sources beyond their point of emission and to contribute to the development of concrete strategies to improve the health of waterways.
