We have a successful record of working with planners, engineers, developers and regulators to promote sites in sensitive hydrological settings or in areas prone to drought or flood risk.
Our specialists in hydrology, water resources, water treatment, landscape architecture, ecology, climate science, sustainability, and environmental assessment provide a pool of resources that add to a holistic approach to sustainable water management. They work with our clients to identify key development and operational risks, and design and implement cost effective water management measures in accordance with best practice and local legislation.
How can we help?
Surface water poses a critical environmental constraint for new developments and may often pose an ongoing risk to existing operations. Flood risk assessment, operational water management, storm water drainage design, and pollution control measures are all fundamental considerations for ensuring the sustainability of a project in environmental impact assessment or planning through operations and closure.
A robust understanding of the hydrology and storm water environment should inform the design of infrastructure and any operational practices in order to reduce the risks water presents to a project, whilst minimising the impacts of a project on the environmental flow and water quality conditions of an area.
Our experts gladly assist in baseline hydrological studies, conceptual storm water management plans, design of storm water management infrastructure, sustainable urban drainage systems, watercourse diversions, and pollution control dams amongst others.
Our team can also assist with hydraulic modelling of flood lines and dam break analysis, and offer excellent project services from pre-feasibility to the full scope of project management services. Other services include water quality analysis, surface water quality and flow monitoring plans, Tailings Dam flood routing, modelling of discharges from water bodies, storm-water attenuation, and spillway sizing.
