Our Mission

Our mission is to leverage our unique expertise and provide science based solutions to our clients and partners while supporting the  sustainability of programs of the River Institute.

Our Story

RiverLabs is the Applied Research and Technical Services branch of the River Institute, a not-for-profit research institute aimed at understanding the complex dynamics which face aquatic ecosystems and promoting science through education and involvement. RiverLabs leverages the more than 20 years of environmental and technical expertise, to solve problems for clients.

RiverLabs, along with our network of partners, strives to work with industrial clients to improve efficiency, maintain quality and test innovative ideas and solutions. Although we often focus on environmental issues, we can adapt our approach to a wide range of sectors.
