Groundwater & Hydrogeology

Within the Environment and Water Division a large group of hydrogeologist, geologist, GIS and modelling experts ensure high quality implementation of groundwater related projects.

Our hydrogeological services include all aspects of the identification, assessment, design, implementation and management for:

  • Groundwater and contamination transport modelling
  • Groundwater source protection zone delineation
  • Observation, monitoring, testing, recovery and production wells
  • Groundwater management and control at industrial sites
  • Aquifer storage and recovery (ASR) and river bank filtration (RBF)
  • Well rehabilitation
  • Groundwater remediation, groundwater treatment technologies
  • Enhanced groundwater recharge
  • Climate change mitigation and adaptation
  • Groundwater monitoring systems (including operation)

Our groundwater management practice includes:

  • Hydrogeological assessments, field investigations
  • Aquifer testing
  • Numerical flow and transport modelling
  • Climate change effects analysis
  • Geochemical and isotopic evaluation and modelling
  • Wellhead protection and aquifer management
  • Integrated basin-wide groundwater surface-water management studies
  • Permitting for withdrawal or recharge
  • Social and environmental impact assessments, feasibility studies, CBA
  • Human health and ecological risk assessments
