To Whom It May Concern:

I, Jean-Paul Deveau, retained Thomas Giovannetti P.Eng. NSLS of Civtech Engineering and Surveying for a detailed site development consulting/investigation for a single family home located on Lake Charles, Dartmouth, Nova Scotia in 1997.

Mr. Giovannetti provided drainage and on -site sewage environmental engineering investigation and design services for a property with a known history of problematic flooding characterized by an excess of 3 feet of standing water prior to the installation of Mr. Giovannetti’s recommendations in the area where the residence is currently located.

Mr. Giovannetti’s investigation and design methodology was comprehensive and to this date, despite several severe rainstorms in both summer and winter conditions, no problems have been encountered on our lot despite several instances of flooding in the local area where the municipal storms systems were unable to handle the runoff.

I would not hesitate to use Mr. Giovannetti for work of a similar setup and would hereby recommend Mr. Giovannetti and his company for the determination of the cause of problematic drainage and solutions regarding same.


Yours truly,


Jean-Paul Deveau, B.Sc., B.Eng., MBA
