Vulnerability Assessment and Control Strategy Development

We provide on-site vulnerability assessment of potential macrofouling impacts on individual facilities. RNT Consulting Inc. has been conducting such site assessments for more than twenty years, primarily for clients facing potential infestation by zebra, quagga mussels or golden mussels. RNT has developed the vulnerability assessment checklist at the request of the US Bureau of Reclamation (RNT 2009). This checklist has been widely used by number of facilities in North America.

As part of our vulnerability assessment we advise our clients on available options for the control of biofouling organisms. By examining the specific facility, its environment, and appropriate regulatory regimes, we are able to suggest custom control strategies specific to the client's needs.
