Company History

Since its founding in 1989, Lotowater Technical Services Inc. has specialized in providing contracting services for the exploration, development and protection of groundwater resources and for optimizing well and pumping system performance.

Lotowater was formed to address the absence of science-based approaches to the maintenance and improvement of municipal well performance.  The company founders observed that traditional industry methods were based on standard recipes that were not always suitable for the conditions encountered and believed that designing site specific programs would provide more reliable improvements in well performance.  From this initial vision Lotowater has experienced steady growth by carefully building its staff and equipment.  Our client base has also grown as the benefit of this approach quickly became evident.  We have a long list of very satisfied clients including most of the major municipal groundwater users in southwestern Ontario.

We have been successful because of our specialized knowledge of groundwater occurrence and hydrogeology, groundwater protection, well construction techniques, methods of well maintenance and rehabilitation and aquifer testing.  We have made significant investments in staff and equipment over the years and are now recognized as an industry leader in well rehabilitation and performance testing.

Lotowater is able to provide support to our consultant clients as we employ a number of professional staff and hold Certificates of Authorization from both Professional Engineers Ontario and the Association of Professional Geoscientists of Ontario.
