Hydrological Studies

Scarce, plentiful, wasted, coveted – water is fast becoming the world’s most precious commodity. Too much in the wrong place at the wrong time and this valuable resource becomes an unwanted hazard. We’ve helped clients manage water in all its forms everywhere in the world.

Water, water Everywhere

Water moves continuously through the environment. Seldom is it the right quantity or quality to suit our ever increasing needs. You can take advantage of an integrated water management system designed to cut your costs, using HTMA’s combined surface and ground water resource evaluation expertise to assess and supply your needs.

Not a Drop to Drink

The planning and design to ensure long term water availability for mineral processing plants is important to ensure continuity of the project. HTMA’s
hydrologists undertake extensive studies to identify potential water sources which is later shared with technical design team to develop a system of efficient water supply to desired plant location.

Foresight Saves Time, Effort and Money

HTMA’s comprehensive approach to planning water projects lets us anticipate potential problems. By considering water issues during exploration drilling, a large amount of essentially free hydrogeological test data can be obtained. Filling abandoned large quarries with excess winter river flow is an effective closure method and supplements downstream users and local towns during dry summer months.

Commitment to this Valuable Resource

HTMA’s water professionals can assist with mine and industrial water management, water supply and water quality and national and local management strategies. If you’re concerned about the impact of your project on the water environment HTMA can provide a world class team and the approach to solving your problem from scoping studies to feasibility, design, commissioning and monitoring.
