Minorca – Hydrological and Hydrogeological Assessment

Minorca – Hydrological and Hydrogeological Assessment

We were commissioned to undertake an Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA) for a proposed Opencast Coal Mine, of which a hydrological and hydrogeological assessment was a key component.

In accordance with the requirements of planning legislation in England and Wales, the scope of this assessment was determined by prior consultation with the local planning authority, the Environment Agency, and the Coal Authority.

Provision of a written report, produced as an individual section of Environmental Statement, in conjunction with other sections written by colleagues. We also provided a supplementary report on additional detailed quantitative risk assessment of both local and regional groundwater using numerical modelling techniques.
