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 surface 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 surface water environment. Services provided by RPS included observation borehole design and drilling supervision, pump test design and interpretation, tracer tests, surface water quality monitoring, groundwater modelling review, groundwater level and flow analysis and stakeholder consultation.
