If you require a Flood Risk or Drainage Assessment to support a planning application or Environmental Impact Assessment, Envireau Water’s team of skilled hydrologists and hydro geologists can help.

We are particularly experienced in negotiating permissions and consents in areas that are prone to flooding, which we do by developing well-reasoned technical justifications, and negotiating with regulatory authorities.

Our expertise in drainage design and assessment, together with water chemistry, quality and treatment, enables us to consider discharge water holistically and to develop practical and pragmatic sustainable drainage solutions which are acceptable to the regulator. Our surface water management services include:

Drainage Design and modelling

We specialise in designing drainage systems for a wide variety of land uses as well as both fluvial and surface water runoff modelling. This includes but is not limited to housing developments, industrial estates, and factory sites.
We can assist throughout the process – from the scoping stage, to advising on design, to getting a project through planning. We can support your planning applications, ensuring they meet regulatory requirements.

Geomorphology and river restoration

We offer a comprehensive range of geomorphological and hydro morphological services including assessment and surveys, monitoring, design and appraisal. We can provide fluvial audits, Water Framework Directive impact assessments and advice on river restoration strategies and channel design.

Natural flood management

We offer natural flood management services at catchment and local scale including modelling, mapping, scoping, monitoring and assessment. Additionally, we provide modelling of the benefits of natural flood management schemes.

SuDS for new and existing developments

We consult on sustainable drainage systems and can provide pragmatic solutions with input from our partner ecologists to create management plans.
