What are clients saying about us?

“Heron Hydrologic worked with us to develop a new operational system within Delft-FEWS. We incorporated a hydrological model written in Raven and ported our existing R scripts into our FEWS workflows. We now use this system operationally to inform on current conditions and produce public reports. Many thanks to Rob and the team at Heron Hydrologic for working with us to create this system!”
– Ryan Connon, PhD, Hydrologist, Government of Northwest Territories

“People at Heron Hydrologic are at the forefront of the hydrological sciences. We consider them as partners in our quest for the development of the best hydrological tools that suit our needs.
They understand our needs and work to achieve our goal. We are very pleased to have chosen them and look forward to continue our relationship! Teaming up for success!”
– Pierre Depuis, ing. M.Sc. Senior Hydraulic Specialist at Communauté Métropolitaine de Montréal (CMM)

“Deltares USA has hired Heron Hydrologic to provide support in several projects. The collaboration was smooth: clear communication, deliverables were provided on time and Rob was flexible when conditions changed. We’re looking forward to working together on other projects.”
