Our water specialists internationally as leaders in their fields. Opus is at the forefront of innovative, award winning water supply projects with significant and diverse experience in this area.

What we do

We understand water, we design the infrastructure to access and use it and we train our clients in how to use and optimise our solutions.   

Our suite of services includes asset design to implementation, and ongoing management for both urban and rural storm water, wastewater and water supply projects.

Our water capability and experience covers:

  • Water Supply
  • Water Treatment
  • Reservoirs

We are also specialists in drinking water treatment - delivering solutions from intakes to treatments, disinfection, and distribution. We work with our clients to develop treatment systems that meet the requirements of both local standards and the client's needs.

Our clients include small to large municipalities, provincial parks, First Nations, private developers, industrial properties and federal/provincial agencies. Our experience with a diverse range of treatment technologies means each system can be fully customized to meet local objectives.

We can draw on trenchless technology in our work for our water projects, to minimize the impacts associated with traditional open-cut construction methods. We have completed many trenchless technology projects - some of which are at the forefront of trenchless technology in North America and the world.

Our comprehensive range of water, wastewater, and stormwater planning design capabilities is led by our specialist water business unit – Opus DaytonKnight. Our water engineering specialists are based in North Vancouver, Abbotsford, Smithers, Prince George, Victoria, Kelowna, Calgary, Detroit, Fredericton and Halifax.
