Geo-Environmental Studies

Geo-Environmental studies are typically conducted prior to and in support of the development of facilities that may have a distinct effect on the natural environment, especially ground- and surface water sources. These studies generally include a combination of detailed geotechnical and geohydrological assessments of on-site conditions. Geotechnical support services are typically conducted in support of environmental studies that require specialised input on subsurface soil and rock conditions.

Other studies would include the following:

  • Specialised regional planning investigations of the application of the Groundwater Protocol to manage the potential of groundwater contamination from on-site sanitation (DWA protocol Editions 1&2).
  • Detailed specialised site-specific investigations of the application of the Groundwater Protocol to manage the potential of groundwater contamination from on-site sanitation by delineating “sensitivity zones” based on site conditions.
  • Specialised investigations for the recommendation of suitable design and construction methods for the development of service stations and buried fuel tanks.
  • Specialised site-specific investigations with regard to the identification and evaluation of new and existing waste disposal sites, oxidation ponds and sewerage treatment works.
  • Specialised site-specific investigations with regard to the identification and evaluation of new and existing cemetery sites.
  • Specialised site-specific investigations in support of the EIA process.
  • Community awareness creation and participation in sanitation studies and investigations
