Water Availability and Management

Water is predicted to be behind the conflicts with and between nations in this century the same way oil has been to date. The availability of clean water is one of the main challenges facing humanity.

Desalination refers to any of several processes that remove the excess salt and minerals from saline water in order to obtain potable fresh water. With increasing number of countries suffering from water shortage desalination plants are seen as a viable solution to provide potable water especially with the rapid decline in plant costs.

Our technical expertise can assess the feasibility of desalination plants, advice on best available technology, and looks at sources of brackish water, sea water and hypersaline water.

Surface Water and Groundwater Supply and Assessment
We apply surface/groundwater flow and contaminant transport modelling, risk assessment and quantitative hydrogeological techniques and use analytical solutions and sophisticated numerical models tailored to assess and solve specific water problems.

Our services include:
• Water supply
• Groundwater assessment
• Groundwater flow and contaminant transport modelling
• Hydrochemical modelling
• Groundwater Remedial alternatives: Evaluation for a wide range of remedial options including monitored natural attenuation (MNA), air sparging, soil vapour extraction, pump and treat, reactive barrier wall (funnel and gate), hydraulic containment etc.
• River-aquifer interactions assessing hydrological and ecological effects of groundwater abstraction on stream flows.
• Groundwater protection and management: Conducting groundwater vulnerability studies; defining the time-related groundwater protection zone (GPZ); evaluating conjunctive use of groundwater and surface water resources.
• Forecasting and risk analysis for analytical groundwater modelling and remedial costs.

Water Quality and Treatment
We provide complete water quality solutions for sewage systems, treatment plants, offshore installations, etc. We can help industry reduce water consumption and emit less wastewater pollutants. Often, this brings cost reductions and reduced business risk for clients.

Our services include:
• Water resource management planning
• Water quality studies
• Industrial water use and pollution generation
• Develop strategies to minimise the amount of water used in processes

• Project management
