Water Resources

Sweco teams are working with the majority of the UK’s water companies on the development of solutions, the management and protection of their water supplies.

Sweco’s water resources team of hydrogeologists and hydrologists, supported by in-house civil, structural, geotechnical, process, MEICA, systems and environmental teams are experienced in all stages of a project from feasibility through to construction, commissioning, asset optimisation and communication.

We have worked with clients on Water Framework Directive investigations to mitigate surface water abstraction impacts, developed drought plan studies and groundwater feasibility assessments. Our innovations include the development of new abstraction options and borehole construction, rehabilitation and testing.

We have vast experience in collaborative working, joint venture and high profile, multi-stakeholder projects.

Our specialist skills are sought in major infrastructure projects, where our multi-disciplinary teams have advised on de-watering requirements, flood risks and EIA (Environmental Impact Assessments).
