Surface water

Our experts can assess the quality of surface and recreational waters and determine the cause of water pollution, including differentiating between sources of pollution.

Our work includes developing monitoring and reporting programmes, applying bacterial and viral tracers to mark and follow effluent plumes, and conducting microbial risk assessments on discharges.
