Water Supply Pipe Assessments
We regularly undertake site investigations for water pipe assessments in order to recommend appropriate water supply pipes for water main diversions, replacements, or new installations. Our water pipe investigation and assessment approach has been developed from discussions with Scottish Water regarding its interpretation of the UKWIR guidance, and from our experience in the investigation and assessment of contaminated land.
We investigate groundwater quantity and quality to help identify sources of potential contamination and provide clients with accurate data for risk assessment.
We undertake hydrogeological studies both as stand along projects for our clients, or to support wider contaminated land redevelopment, environmental impact assessments and ecological studies.
We’re very experienced in a comprehensive range of tests to determine the hydraulic properties of an aquifer or confining bed. We use this data to to predict water yield, to investigate risks to groundwater and to improve the design of remediation and dewatering systems.
Groundwater and contaminant transport modelling
We use groundwater and contaminant transport modelling (using MODFLOW, MT3D & RT3D) to facilitate the risk-based approach. 3D models are powerful visual tools for communicating with clients, regulators and the public
