Envireau Water welcomed Jamie, a Hydrogeologist, to the team earlier this month. He is based in Envireau Water’s Head Office in Draycott. Jamie graduated from the University of Strathclyde with an MSc in Hydrogeology after completing his BSc (Hons) in Geology with Petroleum Geology at the University of Aberdeen.
Before joining Envireau Water, Jamie worked for the University of Strathclyde on a Government funded project. His work was mainly focused on field activities and research out in Malawi relating to groundwater resources. His responsibilities in his previous role included hydrogeological data analysis, needs assessment analysis, water quality testing, borehole forensics, borehole rehabilitation, borehole decommissioning, drilling supervision, student supervision, government liaison and capacity building. This fieldwork-focused experience brings lots of technical expertise in field hydrogeology to the team.
At Envireau Water, he is already involved in a range of projects in the quarrying and mining, food and drink and oil and gas sectors. Jamie provides environmental monitoring and data analysis, hydrogeological impact assessments, groundwater feasibility studies for industrial and private supplies, dewatering assessments and environmental permitting. He is a fellow of the Geological Society of London and is actively recording his progression towards chartership as part of his professional development.
Jamie on what he brings to the team:
“Although my previous experience and projects have a predominant focus on groundwater supply issues in Malawi, there are quite a few similarities here at Envireau Water. These similarities include assessing the needs of a client, developing an understanding or baseline of an area, implementing pragmatic solutions and providing technical expertise. I think that Envireau Water is an ideal fit for my skill set and I’m looking forward to progressing my career as a hydrogeologist here.”
