RAINWATER MANAGEMENT

By law, rainwater that falls on a plot of land must drain away on the same plot, depending on the nature of the subsoil. This is not always easy to achieve.

Geotest Ltd.'s services include:

  • Determining the water absorption capacity of the subsoil by performing hydrogeological measurements and field tests
  • Assessing the infiltration options and advising on the type of infiltration system (surface troughs, soakaway pits, infiltration galleries) and retention facilities
  • Calculating rainwater quantities and design of infiltration systems
  • Surveying the condition and assessing existing infiltration systems
  • Producing infiltration maps and inventories for local authorities (basis for general drainage planning)
  • Drawing up drainage concepts
  • Investigating the possible causes of water infiltration in buildings
