Water’s Edge History

Water’s Edge was founded by Ed Gazendam in 2004 to fill an obvious need in the industry for knowledgeable and experienced stream and river restoration practitioners. The company is located in Cambridge (Galt). The company started with a sole partner but quickly expanded to include technical and professional staff with a current staff of over 10 dedicated professional, technical and administrative staff.
