• Groundwater Exploration which entails geological mapping, hydrocensus surveys; geophysical surveys; 3D conceptualization which all contributes to informed borehole siting and associated borehole drilling design, borehole construction and borehole specifications.
  • Borehole drilling related activities which include collating drilling quotations and appointment of drillers; managing drilling contracts; geological supervision of borehole drilling and the borehole driller; compilation of borehole logs and drilling reports, including geological and water strike information and design of the following steps.
  • Legislative aspects, including registration and Water Use Licence Applications and Water Service Intermediary (WSI) submissions; as well as submitting documentation and data as required per Compliance Conditions and/or Municipal By-Laws.
  • Monitoring and Management, including groundwater evaluation with respect to sustainability; determination of seasonal groundwater level and quality fluctuations; assessment of impacts of neighboring groundwater use; compliance with regulatory requirements (including electronic flow and water level monitoring, with telemetry.
  • Numerical Modelling which includes detailed resource sustainability evaluations; assessment of impacts of abstracting or other stresses on aquifers (scenario modelling); numerical groundwater flow and mass transport (contaminant migration) modelling; geodatabases / geographical information systems (GIS) and remote sensing.
  • Ancillary Groundwater Services, which includes aquifer protection and management; borehole camera logging; groundwater contamination assessments; groundwater impact assessments; geotechnical studies and specialist groundwater input as required for legal cases.
