Maidenhead Ditch


Maidenhead Ditch National Environment Programme Investigation

South East Water/Jacobs

In recent years it was thought that South East Water’s groundwater abstractions in Maidenhead were contributing to the lowering of water levels in the Maidenhead Ditch.

RPS supported the completion of an AMP5 Low Flow impact assessment of the Maidenhead Ditch with Jacobs to assess the potential impacts of abstraction on the local water environment. Hydrogeological services provided by RPS included observation borehole design and drilling supervision, pump test design and interpretation, tracer tests, groundwater modelling review, groundwater level and flow analysis and stakeholder consultation.
