Our team of geophysics specialists combined with our unrivalled in-house collection of geophysical instrumentation are able to combine methodologies that maximise the chances of achieving a successful survey outcome.
Leakage Detection on Dams
Across the UK, dams and spillways are reaching or exceeding their design life. As a result, there is an increased risk of failure leading to interruptions to water supply systems, the effectiveness of flood defences and even a risk to life. Additional strain is caused by more extreme weather events as the UK experiences the effects of climate change.
Non-invasive geophysics provides the opportunity to investigate the subsurface of a dam or spillway, where there is significant potential for unidentified defects to develop.
