Hydrogeological Assessments are the systematic study of geology, hyrdogeology, geochemistry and contamination at a site. These assessments are critical in assessing the risk posed to the environment by existing or proposed waste disposal, storage facilities and landfill sites, as well as chemical and petroleum storage handling.
A hydrogeological site assessment will provide quality information to aid owners, developers, potential purchasers and regulators to identify the risk to health and the environment from potential contamination. Contamination of land may be commonly encountered where land has been used for storage, handling and/or the disposal of chemicals and wastes.
Landserv’s environmental scientists and engineers are experienced in:
- Groundwater monitoring well installation;
- Groundwater quality assessment;
- Feasibility studies;
- Conceptual site model preparation;
- Preparation of numerical models to quantify groundwater flow and contamination;
- Computer modeling using Visual Modflow and FeFlow;
- Assessment of Hydrogeological condition and potential risk to receptors; and
- Groundwater and surface water monitoring during construction work.
Selected Project Experience
Landserv was commissioned to conduct a hydrogeological assessment as part of a geotechnical investigation for works related to the stormwater system at Warrnambool.
Operations by Landserv involved a review and interpretation of groundwater quality results for two site bores, hydrogeological modelling, and examination of regional and site geological, hydrogeological and topographic conditions.
Based on the findings of the investigation, a preparation of a Hydrogeological Assessment report in accordance with EPA Victoria Hydrogeological Assessment Guidelines was developed.
