Our Project Experience

Hydrogeological Investigations

Hydrogeological Investigations

EHS Support hydrogeologists and geochemists understand that our clients require reliable and sustainable water supplies, predictable inflow rates and confidence that the risks of impacts of their projects on groundwater and surface water quality, other groundwater users and groundwater-dependent ecosystems are minimised. Our hydrogeologists and geochemists provide specialised groundwater services for mining, civil, agriculture, water supply and wastewater management.

Water Sourcing, Supply & Security

Water Sourcing, Supply & Security

Fundamental components of water resource projects, such as identifying resource quantity and quality, knowledge of applicable regulatory requirements, potential threats to the resource and real or perceived effects on stakeholder groups, can present challenges for any organisation. At EHS Support, we provide comprehensive water resource services to address the administrative, technical, security, compliance and communication challenges associated with implementing water sourcing and supply projects.

Water Quality & Restoration

Water Quality & Restoration

EHS Support has significant experience regarding water-quality assessments and the implementation of practical strategies across watersheds, groundwater basins, rivers, wetlands and lake/reservoir systems. From baseline assessments to geochemical modelling and assimilative capacity demonstrations, our expertise in risk evaluations, environmental chemistry, ecology, governmental negotiations and regulations are focused on delivering a right-size solution for your organisational needs.

Ecosystem & Natural Resource Restoration

Ecosystem & Natural Resource Restoration

Understanding complex natural systems and the vital role water plays in supporting these systems is integral to the assessment and restoration of ecological functions. Leveraging our experience, technical skills and partnerships with industry and academic experts, we simplify and clearly communicate challenges, analyse and examine interdependencies and provide information necessary to inform decision making and to implement real-world solutions for both the human and natural environment.

Operational Studies

Operational Studies

A key consideration across industries is minimising the potential for degradation through risk assessment and best management practices. Our extensive experience involving operational studies in water conservation, water supply alternatives and identification of beneficial uses for both produced and effluent waters has resulted in practical, implementable and cost-effective solutions for our customers that minimise waste, maximise operational efficiency and benefit our surrounding communities.

GIS & Data Management Services

GIS & Data Management Services

Data and data management are core components of effective water management strategies. Whether it’s developing real-time data collection capabilities coupled with GIS, workflows that integrate information and data across teams, eliminating redundancies, streamlining and automating output and analyses (without compromising quality assurance and quality control), we provide the information you need to assess conditions and allow for rapid decision making across your organisational structure.
