Water poses a significant hazard to the built environment. Buried lifelines, such as pipelines and communication systems, may be damaged as a result of flooding or hydraulic scour, and roads, bridges, and other surface facilities may be impacted as a result of gullying or hillslope failure.
Stormwater quality is also affected by urban hydrologic processes. A combination of geologic, hydrologic and engineering approaches can be used to develop best management practices for reducing erosion, improving water quality, and improving aquatic and riparian habitats.
Fugro Water Services supports its clients in assessing and understanding the nature of challenges related to water resources management and advises on risks and mitigation measures.
