Surface Water

RPS provides a range of Surface Water services to clients across the energy and resources, infrastructure, mining, land/urban development, community and government sectors.

We have a professional team of technical specialists that enable a multidisciplinary approach to surface waters and that provide clients with access to baseline investigation and assessment (physical, biological and chemical), modelling and flows management, water balance and water use/reuse investigation, and water management planning. Given that solutions to surface water issues often extend across disciplines (e.g. aquatic ecology, water quality, modelling, mapping, and policy and management), it has been important to RPS that we are able to provide a technically integrated surface water service to clients from any sector and for any purpose.
