Hydrogeology

Our team of experts are widely recognised for providing high quality technical expertise on a broad range of groundwater-related projects, to both the private and public sectors.

The SLR groundwater team is driven by excellence and recognises the importance of integrating technical, legal, regulatory and economic issues to support our clients in making effective decisions during all stages of a project.

Overview

How can we help?

Groundwater sources need to be managed sustainably, utilising various scientific studies and investigations.

Understanding the hydrogeological setting requires thorough knowledge of the natural environment and the mitigating processes to be followed to reduce the risk of contamination, and to guarantee sustained groundwater supply.

We have extensive practical experience in all aspects of hydrogeological site characterisation, as well as utilising industry-standard software, and state-of-the art tools and equipment.

We’re also recognised for our contributions on numerous professional and technical committees for the development and review of technical guidance documents for groundwater practitioners.
