Groundwater Monitoring

Groundwater monitoring is often undertaken as part of both geotechnical and contamination investigations.

Groundwater levels are important in foundation, retaining wall and excavation design, as well as in the assessment of contamination risks to the water environment.

Groundwater samples from borehole installations can be tested at the laboratory and used as part of a controlled waters risk assessment or validation of remedial works.
