The UdeS hydraulic laboratory is one of the largest in Canada. It is used as much for the courses as for the research or the realization of expertises. Numerous assemblies and several channels allow the visualization and the experimentation of almost all the phenomena of the hydraulics with free surface and under pressure. It includes a 40 hp pump, a charging system, a gauging station, channels, numerous valves and a wave channel. Measuring instruments using the latest technologies, such as acoustic doppler velocimetry, are connected to computerized data acquisition systems.
The hydraulics laboratory of the civil engineering department has several equipment to reproduce flows with free surface and load.

Measuring instruments using the latest technologies, such as acoustic doppler velocimetry, are connected to computerized data acquisition systems. As part of research activities, specific editing can be done. Currently, we can observe a test bench to assess, in full size, the hydraulic capacity of the storm sewer grilles.

LIASHyC aims to be a world reference in the field of complex hydrogeological systems through the quality and relevance of its research and innovation, training and transfer activities. The research and innovation program focuses on fractured media hydrogeology, hydrogeology of northern and alpine regions, and characterization of hydrogeological heterogeneities. LIASHyC consists of the following parties: - Institute of Earth Sciences of the UNIL (ISTE-UNIL) - Center of Hydrogeology and Geothermal Energy of UNINE (CHYN-UNINE) - Center Eau Terre Environnement of the INRS - Department of Geology and Geological Engineering of Laval University
At Polytechnique Montréal, the FCI-MELS grant has enabled the construction of analysis spaces, test wells, a Level 2 room for work on pathogenic organisms, fixed pilot installations, cold rooms and temperature controlled rooms, analytical chemistry, microbiology and environmental engineering rooms, and test halls, for an area of 800 m2 approximately. These spaces are dedicated to drinking water and wastewater treatment projects and complement existing facilities. Two laboratories for treating pulp and paper sludge by bio-drying are also used by CREDEAU researchers. The facilities available at the École de Technologie Supérieure, for a total area of approximately 800 m2, include a pilot hall for large-scale studies, an instrumentation laboratory and a wet laboratory for analysis, a microbiology laboratory, physics and weighing, a controlled environmental chamber to simulate seasonal conditions and a clean room for research in biotechnology and nanotechnology. A product and process design laboratory was built at the Université de Montréal at the André-Aisenstadt Pavilion in 2014. The computerized laboratory is equipped with the BALAS process simulation software to obtain off-site real time. A phytotechnology research infrastructure was also installed at the Montréal Botanical Garden in 2016. It will be used for phytotechnology work carried out by the Université de Montréal research team to develop water treatment processes. waste and sludge with plants.
Microbiology laboratory equipped with 2 Labfors 7L bioreactors, a Luxfors 3,5L photobioreactor, a Terrafors 10L solid fermentor, a DIC microscope, a GC, a Dionex IC-5000 and a Beckman Coulter FC-500 flow cytometer. It is also possible, through this laboratory, to have access to the pilot ozonator of the Research Center for lignocellulosic materials at the UQTR and to the Innofibre pilot workshop of the Cégep de Trois-Rivières which include various tanks and high capacity mixers for chemical and biochemical treatments of all kinds (max operating temperature of 220C). A 600-ml pressurized reactor dedicated to hydrothermal liquefaction of wet biomass is also available.
