Our Services


We provide a wide range of hydrologic assessment services, including:

  • Design flow calculation for structures and stream crossings
  • Develop wet weather safety shutdown for workers
  • Fluvial geomorphology for environmental assessments
  • Safe Flood Construction Levels (FCL) determination and recommendations for flood protection measures for developments on floodplains or alluvial fans or that are near mountain streams
  • Water balance development for streams, lakes, and glaciers
  • Watershed assessment, including adaptive strategies for hydrologically sustainable watershed management

Most of British Columbia consists of rugged, mountainous terrain with landforms originating from glacial, paraglacial and non-glacial processes. These landscapes are often unstable and prone to landslides and other forms of mass wasting.

Statlu specializes in analyzing the diverse landscapes for natural hazard assessments, terrain stability assessments, and resource road construction.

We analyse terrain to determine the terrain stability hazard. We use a combination of field observation, airphoto interpretation, and remote sensing. Our hazard assessments use recent climate data and the latest climate change models to model the hazard now and to predict how it may change in the future.

Land Development

Statlu assesses natural hazards that can affect residential and industrial land before properties are developed. We determine the probability and risk of natural hazards such as debris flows, floods, landslides, and rockfalls by analyzing air photos, making field observations, and researching past events on similar landscapes.

Our agrology services include on-farm drainage and water management planning, agricultural capability assessment, and agricultural impact assessment. We apply our skills and experience with pedology, soil survey, and hydrology to determine the potential for soil bound agricultural uses. We incorporate modelled climate change predictions into water management plans and agricultural capability assessments to provide farmers with the necessary information to build resilience into their long-term farm plans.

Other Services

Statlu provides a variety of other services that cater to unique projects or environments. For example, we complete karst assessments, geotechnical hazard assessments for hydroelectric power projects, and tailored hydrologic expertise. We offer Geographic Information System (GIS) analysis services, using ESRI GIS software.

What we don't do...

Statlu does not conduct contaminated site investigations (Phase I or Stage 1 Site Investigations), mold or asbestos abatement, engineering, or biological services such as riparian area regulations assessments or identification of fish-bearing streams. We do not work in the fossil fuel sector. If you are unsure where to find the appropriate professionals, we will be happy to provide you with recommendations or referrals.
