Gore Water Supply Works Nitrate Monitoring

Southern Water

RPS was commissioned by Southern Water to sample groundwater quality at Gore Water Supply Works (WSW) for nitrate pollution.

In previous years, groundwater quality at the WSW had been compromised by high concentrations of nitrate and the groundwater abstraction shut down until water quality improved. RPS completed a water quality investigation on the site to assess nitrate concentrations over time and determine the source of the nitrate pollution. The report provided by RPS was used to determine if the groundwater source could be returned to normal operations.
