Atma Environmental provides a wide range of hydrogeological services including specialised groundwater assessment reports and can help you manage any groundwater remediation issues at competitive commercial rates.

Contamination of groundwater may occur as a result of leaking underground storage tanks, seepage from landfills, chemical spills and/or deposition of hazardous wastes in or on the ground. All Victorians have obligations to prevent groundwater contamination under the State Environmental Protection Policy (SEPP) “Groundwaters of Victoria”.

The identification of groundwater contamination is crucial in ascertaining the potential environmental liability associated with a site. Groundwater contamination should be assessed wherever there is an identified source of sub-surface contamination or significant potential for chemical leakage.

The assessment of groundwater contamination (a hydrogeological assessment) is a key element in conducting contaminated land audits.  Where a site is determined to be a source site for groundwater contamination, additional remediation or management requirements may be required.
