Hydrogeological Assessments

lowflowAn understanding of groundwater conditions can be a vital part of many different types of project, and is often a regulatory requirement, necessary for foundation design, earthworks, pipelines, basement design, contamination risk assessment, effluent or surface water discharge, or private water supply.

In common with many aspects of site investigation, a staged or phased approach may be needed.

Southern Testing provide a full ground investigation and site assessment service, from initial desk study through to intrusive site investigation, installation of monitoring instruments, monitoring, sampling, in-situ and laboratory permeability testing, and factual or interpretative reporting.

Groundwater conditions are routinely assessed in all geotechnical and geoenvironmental ground investigations, and our teams are experienced in detailed hydrogeological assessments to support contaminated land site investigation and remediation design, environmental permitting applications, basement impact assessments, and environmental impact assessment.

Southern Testing are continuing to work through the Coronavirus (COVID-19) emergency, including carrying out site work where it is safe to do so.

The Government have given express support to the Construction sector and have issued specific guidance for working on site. The Construction Leadership Council have also issued guidance.

We have revised our travelling and working practices to ensure that our staff are protected, and to meet the particular requirements of the guidance as well as our own risk assessments. The guidance and our working practices are under constant review.

Most site investigation work can be undertaken safely under the current restrictions.

We are committed to helping all our clients, old and new, during this difficult time. Should you have any site investigation requirements, or wish to discuss a particular project, please do not hesitate to contact us.
