AWE provides high quality dewatering solutions within civil, structural and geotechnical design teams. Our approach is based on a thorough characterisation of the pre-development site hydrogeology and groundwater flow conditions, and interaction with the design engineers to characterise the physical changes that are proposed. 

AWE personnel have worked on a range of dewatering projects from designing small scale dewatering schemes for local construction to managing groundwater inflows for mining operations.  The benefit of the AWE team is that we provide both the hydrogeological and engineering design capabilities in-house.  This improves project efficiency for the client and ensures that scheme designs are both practical and tailored to the unique hydrogeological setting of each site.
