Mine Water Management

The Pentium Water team has experience in managing and leading projects that require an integrated approach to managing water across a mining project. The team is focused on providing practical, integrated water management solutions to solve problems that matter to our clients. We have experience in below water table projects where dewatering and the disposal of that surplus water is a key approval and operational risk.

We have experts in hydrogeology, hydrology, managed aquifer recharge, environmental approvals and planning.

Our team has extensive experience in the following areas of the mine water management service:

  • Groundwater and surface water assessment and management plans
  • Hydrogeological conceptualisation to inform investigations, dewatering strategies and water management approaches.
  • Baseline assessment and design of monitoring networks for both groundwater and surface water
  • Field hydrogeology and drilling supervision
  • Aquifer testing supervision and analysis
  • Groundwater supply assessments
  • Managed Aquifer Recharge assessments
  • Groundwater modelling and drawdown predictions
  • Groundwater and surface water monitoring
  • Flood studies and integrated surface water catchment management

Integrated Stormwater and Urban Water Management

Our team provides practical and innovative hydrological advice and solutions to clients in the residential and industrial land development sector to address stormwater management issues including urban flooding and stormwater quality. Urban development projects can involve a complex approval process with competing requirements from both the state and local government which needs to be navigated by an experienced practitioner. The project will often require detailed technical assessments such as flood and drainage modelling to inform the design responses.

Our team of experts work on:

  • Groundwater and surface water monitoring
  • Stormwater management assessments and planning
  • Catchment modelling (hydrology, hydraulics, flood modelling and impact assessments)
  • Masterplan drainage planning and structure plan designs
  • Flood mitigation and drainage designs
  • Water balance modelling
  • Groundwater modelling to support subsoil drainage design and fill import optimisation
  • Urban water management reporting including

    • Regional water management strategies
    • District water management strategies
    • Local water management strategies
    • Urban water management plans
  • Water supply options assessments
  • Alternate water supply assessments and approval process guidance and management
