Dewatering Review and Legal Support

Western Environmental was engaged by a law firm representing the primary insurer for a number of properties affected by a poorly executed dewatering program at a construction site in South Perth. The project was high risk, involving contaminated land, groundwater and dewatering where significant impact to surrounding structures was caused by contaminated groundwater and improper discharge management leading to localised flooding of basements as well as environmental impact.

Works included a technical review of documentation, dewatering treatment and effluent discharge management, dewatering and treatment system design and compliance monitoring and reporting, and advice to counsel regarding cause of observed impacts to the environment and surrounding properties.
