Interesting articles, full of information and analysis, written by the Envireau Water team and featured in industry publications.
Lee Clarke, Principal Hydrologist/Hydrogeologist, and Rebecca Haw, Hydrologist have been published in the June issue of Quarry Management outlining the challenges involved in ensuring the largest quarry wetland creation project in Europe delivers benefits for ecology and people.
Envireau Water’s expertise in hydraulic modelling allows us to evaluate and design engineered wetlands, wetland restoration schemes, simulate geomorphology and natural flood management, drainage systems, SUDs suitability, flood routing, as well as dam breaches. Our ability to develop designs and convey these using different communication methods provides our clients with a holistic approach to clearly understand their water management requirements. If we can help you with a similar project, please contact Lee Clarke directly on 01332 871 878 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
A reliable groundwater supply is vital for many brewers, distillers and maltsters who require large volumes of water of a consistent quantity and quality for production.
Unfortunately, groundwater supplies are not unlimited. After the very dry summer in 2018 and below average levels of rainfall during winter, the impact on groundwater levels is now really starting to show, with aquifers not recharging sufficiently.
In the summer issue of BFBI’s Your Voice, Envireau Water have been published discussing what abstractors need to do to ensure they have the water they need to continue operating during another dry year.
Principal Hydrogeologist and Managing Director of Envireau Water, Dr Phil Ham, was published in the February issue of Water Active discussing the hows and whys of monitoring boreholes that are used to supply water for commercial purposes.
The UK Irrigation Association (UKIA) have produced an Irrigators’ Handbook which brings together valuable information on irrigation matters for farmers and growers.
James Dodds, Chairperson of Envireau Water contributed to the guide with an article focused on groundwater irrigation. In his article, James explores sustainable abstraction and the licensing process for abstraction.
It is a year since James Dodds, Chairperson of Envireau Water, wrote an article for Quarry Management on the ‘New’ Authorisations process. He has been published again in the January 2019 issue of Quarry Management reviewing where we are now with Quarry Dewatering New Authorisations.
The article details the two different types of licences; the process routes that need to be undertaken; and exemptions from the licensing requirement. James highlights the lessons that have been learned from applications that have been submitted to date, and key messages from the Environment Agency and Natural Resources Wales. With only a small percentage of the expected number of applications having been submitted to date, the article places an emphasis on the importance of compiling and submitting your application sooner rather than later.
Principal Hydrogeologist and Managing Director of Envireau Water, Dr Phil Ham, was published in the December issue of GeoDrilling. In his article, Phil provides an insight into the hows and whys of monitoring boreholes that are used to supply water for commercial use.
Envireau Water’s Chairperson, James Dodds, has been published in the February issue of Quarry Management. In his article, James discusses the new regulatory arrangements for quarry dewatering and outlines the steps operators will need to take.
We’re thrilled that Envireau Water’s Managing Director, James Dodds, has been published in the February issue of Water Active. In his article, James takes a look at the real risk of fracking to groundwater. The article is available in the Envireau Knowledge section of our website, which can be accessed for free here.

The March issue of Water and Wastewater International published an article by Envireau Water’s Michael Underwood, which explored the Blue-Green approach as a way to provide measures to manage the risk of flooding and reintroduce a more natural water cycle into urban environments.
The August issue of Water and Wastewater Treatment published an article by Envireau Water’s Dr Phil Ham, which explained that whether your water supply is large or small, boreholes can provide years of service if given the right care and attention.
Water Active, January issue, included an article by Envireau Water’s Phil Ham looking at the importance of monitoring borehole performance to avoid serious and costly problems.
Geodrilling International, December issue, included an article by Envireau Water’s Phil Ham dealing with water quality issues and the importance of regular monitoring and maintenance of boreholes to avoid loss of quality and ultimately failure.
Water Active, September Issue included an article by Envireau Water’s Lee Clarke and James Dodds looking at the fact that with regulators taking a harder approach to breaches of consents and permits; the increasing difficulty in obtaining new permits; planning conditions seemingly getting tighter; and with the growing requirement for assessing water footprints, the need for monitoring data gets ever bigger.
The article covers the purpose of monitoring, field installation, survey and data collection frequency.
Brewing and Distilling International, October issue, included an article by Paul Buttrik, Beer Dimensions, with input from Envireau Water’s Dr Phil Ham looking at the complex world of water use in the Brewing Industry.
This article was published in the December issue Brewer & Distiller International.
Arbroath based maltster and Scotland’s leading malt producer, Bairds Malt needed to find a way of developing independent groundwater supplies to enable them to deliver a significant reduction in the unit cost of water consumed and so give them a major competitive advantage. The article examines how the rehabilitation of existing boreholes and the installation of new ones can deliver significant cost savings.
Envireau Water’s Phil Ham discusses whether we should be concerned about Fracking in the Institute of Brewing & Distilling’s June issue of Brewing & Distilling International.
