GW Solutions Inc. is a consulting firm specializing in hydrogeology. Founded in 2005 by Dr. Gilles Wendling, GW Solutions has grown to become a respected firm acting in western and northern Canada. Our team has a combined skill set that covers the technical, software, educational, and field related aspects of hydrogeology.
Although our office is based in Nanaimo, BC, we are involved in projects throughout western Canada and the Yukon. We work collaboratively with First Nations, other companies, and regional and municipal governments, identifying practical and economical solutions to manage and protect groundwater and watersheds.
We use the most advanced tools and have the knowledge to help our clients understand groundwater, aquifers, and the interconnection between surface water and groundwater. In our work, we continually strive to communicate our results in effective and visual ways, so that we may better assist our diverse clientele in identifying solutions and making decisions.
We invite you to explore our website to find out more about who we are and what we do.
Our work focuses on protecting groundwater to ensure the health of ecosystems and people. As a result, much of our expertise, resources, and knowledge are dedicated to safeguarding water for future generations and better understanding how water moves in watersheds and interacts with the land and communities.
We enjoy working on solutions with clients to reach a greater understanding, adapted management, adequate monitoring and long-term protection of water.
GW Solutions strongly believes in education. Dr. Gilles Wendling has given nearly 200 presentations to the public, from classes of kindergarten children to adult audiences at international conferences.
GW Solutions has produced posters, handbooks, presentations, video clips and participated in films dealing with groundwater, aquifers, and watersheds.
Dr. Wendling has published peer-reviewed technical papers and is a co-author of the book Canada's Groundwater Resources (A.Rivera and al.)
GW Solutions believes in the role played by communities in protecting watersheds. We provide technical support and expertise to organisations (e.g. stream keepers, volunteers) and groups of concerned citizens in their actions. In such situations, we volunteer our time and expertise or adjust the cost of our services to support such important initiatives.
We are happy to share our knowledge and understanding of water and watersheds at public forums.
