Operations & Maintenance

British Columbia Operations and Maintenance Services

MSR Solutions is more than just an engineering design firm: we also provide ongoing operations and maintenance services for water and wastewater systems and employ an in-house EOCP-certified operator for small water systems.

Even a well-designed and constructed treatment plant requires the intervention of a knowledgeable, attentive operator. MSR Solutions has extensive operational experience with a broad range of water and wastewater treatment processes. Our expertise ranges from sedimentation to electrocoagulation. We provide guidance to small system operators as they learn the intricacies of their system. We assist in developing effective procedures and monitoring routines and maintenance practices. In addition, we have the expertise to provide sound advice and consultation when performance wavers, and rapid troubleshooting and solution implementation are demanded.

Onsite System Inspections and Maintenance

Our team of field engineers and technologists have a wealth of experience in onsite wastewater treatment and disposal. We frequently provide recommendations and oversee repairs to disposal fields and onsite treatment systems.

Water Systems Analysis, Operations and Maintenance Services

Supplying drinking water to consumers is a great responsibility. Effective operating procedures and monitoring programs are essential. They provide assurance that the system components are operating to specification and the water at the taps is potable.  MSR Solutions can help operators and system owners develop practical routines as well as hone in on optimal operating conditions to improve water quality and optimize operator intervention.

Wastewater Treatment Plant Inspections, Analysis and Maintenance

Routine maintenance by a knowledgeable service provider is vital. It keeps wastewater treatment plants performing effectively so they attain an acceptable effluent quality. Occasional auditing by an experienced third party will often identify process or procedural improvements that can lead to significant energy and manpower savings. MSR Solutions provides this service. MSR Solutions can also diagnose problems and develop solutions when effluent quality deteriorates, routine operations fail and the causes cannot be readily identified.


We have worked with MSR on various projects on Vancouver Island for about five years now. MSR Solutions pays attention to our needs and works with us and within our budgets. Mike Seymour help us navigate the regulatory approval process and speaks for us when we needed. He does it in such a way that it makes everyone’s job easier.

The Limona Group

MSR has been our project engineer of choice since the early stages of the Millstream Industrial Park water line development. They helped ensure we were compliant with local bylaws and CRD Water standards to bring our private domestic water distribution system into our 70-acre industrial park. This private water system supplies domestic water to our clients. In addition, they have also engineered drainage and fire protection systems.

Working with MSR Solutions makes my job easier. They are readily available to discuss our current upgrades and needs. Everyone at MSR is friendly, professional and they give prompt service, which is particularly important in my industry. I highly recommend working with them.
