Water quality assessment is often carried out as an isolated survey to determine the ‘health’ of a water body or as part of a wider monitoring programme. Planning conditions for major infrastructure with the potential to impact on protected watercourses may require years of monitoring pre-construction, to determine the effects of surface water runoff during construction.
Sample collection, monitoring and assessment
We provide UNESCO trained surveyors that have the field experience of sample collection but also are able to outline a monitoring programme and assessment of the watercourse in question.
And we can guide developers through the requirements of monitoring design, presenting findings to determine the potential impact of a development on the environment such as aquatic ecotoxicology.
