Hamish Weatherly, M.Sc, P.Geo. (ON, BC, AB), has over 25 years of international consulting experience. His main areas of expertise are hydrology, fluvial geomorphology, and river engineering. This knowledge is routinely applied to the protection of linear infrastructure (e.g., pipelines, roads, and railways) at watercourse crossings and encroachments. Hamish’s geomorphology and hydrologic expertise is complemented by his knowledge of river engineering including: hydraulic assessment of bridge, pipeline and culvert crossings; hydraulic modeling of flooding hazards; and the integration of river morphology and flow hydraulics in assessing bank erosion and scour.
He has also worked extensively on the development of water management plans for proposed, in construction and existing mines, and closure activities. Hamish has been involved in all aspects of water management including the development of site water balance models, water management strategies, and the design of infrastructure such as pond volumes, pumping capacities, diversion channels and spillways.
