Dewatering operations

We have extensive experience and offer a full range of support services for the operation, management and monitoring of site dewatering for construction purposes.

Prior to any site works, we work to ascertain the site history, proposed excavation levels, piling type and depths, target dewatering depths, existing boreholes, sewer access, baseline groundwater levels and any indications of contamination onsite.

The application of acid to treat water unintentionally mixed with cement prior to discharge is often required on construction sites to ensure compliance with discharge licence conditions. Our team of environmental scientists is highly trained and experienced in providing this very specialized service. The process involves the application of an appropriate acid product, flushing through the system or infrastructure and environmental testing to ensure no residual impacts on the local water environment. We offer this service with a strong focus on the safety aspects and procedures associated with the handling of these hazardous substances.
