Hydrogeological Services

Posted on 11 Jul 2018

Envass has aligned with Matthew Damhuis of Alicanto Groundwater Solutions to offer more comprehensive hydrogeological capabilities to our valued clients. Matthew is a hydrogeologist with 8 years of experience in the South African and African mining sector, with his focal area being numerical modelling for the past 6 years. With this strategic alignment, Envass can now offer our clients more detailed hydrogeological services, such as feasibility studies and comprehensive numerical modelling projects.


Groundwater numerical modelling is a powerful tool in the decision-makers toolkit and allows for various scenarios to be evaluated at a relatively low cost, compared to implementing and finding out that it was wrong. Envass is able to complete both flow and transport modelling exercises using finite difference modelling code, as well as analytical modelling techniques where they are applicable. All numerical models are completed using international best practice guidelines and are subjected to strict quality control to ensure model confidence and accuracy of results are maximized.


Other Hydrogeological services that we are able to assist our clients with include:


  • Groundwater Characterisation Studies;
  • Numerical Groundwater Modelling;
  • Pollution Plume Migration Studies;
  • Mine Dewatering Strategies and Studies;
  • Chemical Contamination/Hydrochemistry Studies;
  • Water Supply Investigations
  • Geophysical Surveys;
  • Aquifer Testing;
  • Infiltration Testing;
  • Specialist Studies for enviro-legal applications; and
  • Water Management System Design, Operation and Management.
