Surface Water Engineering

Integrating mine water management throughout a project’s operation can lead to realizing the asset’s full value and reducing liability


Ensuring the effective management and development of water resources in accordance with statutory requirements and commercial needs – this is the approach followed by SRK Consulting to problems involving surface water hydrology and hydraulics.

Our team of specialist engineers and scientists combine their experience and skills to offer a comprehensive range of services relating to water management problems. Projects range from planning and analysis of river catchments, through water resource development, to the design and implementation of storm water control measures. Our services cover water quality and quantity, and we use specialist software (as required) to optimize water and effluent control for our mining/industrial clients. By integrating our surface and ground water skills, we are able to adopt a holistic approach to surface and ground water issues.

We assist in the design and implementation of monitoring systems, including the selection and procurement of instrumentation. Routine sampling and monitoring services are available through experienced field technicians.

Our clientele includes mining and industrial clients; local, regional and federal authorities and engineering consultants.
