CCI’s environmental specialists are qualified and experienced as water quality monitors. Since 2004, CCI has implemented water quality monitoring regimes for hundreds of watercourse crossings, from unnamed creeks to large rivers.

For any project, the social license is forefront and very much tied to the protection of rivers and water. CCI’s state of the art monitoring equipment and planning process ensures that when a project goes to construction that it can clearly measure and electronically record any issues that may arise.  This would include those that could possibly have an adverse effect on the water quality or the fisheries habitat. This system, along with the professional biologist on site, can clearly define the event and potential impact and then provide solutions to mitigate the situation.


Provides guidance for regulatory requirements applicable to crossings:

  • US Army Corps of Engineers
  • FERC
  • State Government & Environmental Agencies

Complete watercourse classification and habitat assessments.

Develop water quality monitoring plans and provide 24/7 monitoring through:

  • Turbidity equipment (handheld to satellite tracked units)
  • Conducting frac walks

Provide frac-out response, reporting and clean up expertise and response trailers:

  • Daily client reports c/w historical data logging and photos

Frac-out plume modeling (one dimensional or two-dimensional models).

  • Fish rescue services (electrofishing)
  • Full environmental inspection services

Prepare post-construction report and review with client.

Watercourse reclamation services



CCI’s state of the art monitoring equipment can allow for any of the key personnel on a crossing to be alerted of a potential spike in turbidity.  This can provide a higher level of confidence and due diligence for both the owner and regulator.
