Company History

Waters Edge Engineering was incorporated in 2014. After years of experience working on coastal and civil projects throughout western and northern Canada, our company owner and principal Engineer; Tara Hirsekorn, recognized a need for specialized coastal services throughout our beautiful valley, and the British Columbia Interior.
