Site desk studies

GWG recommend that the first you thing you do before any invasive investigation is to commission us to conduct a desk study. A site desk study consists of a review of all the relevant available data about the site. 

A site desk study normally covers the following areas:

  • ​Establishing the existing and historical land use
  • ​Geology, Hydrology, Hydrogeology
  • ​Anecdotal Information
  • ​Potential contaminants
  • ​Walkover survey
  • Environmental data search; locations of waste sites, other industrial sites, and pollution incidents.
