CCI’s Environmental Specialists are qualified and experienced as water quality monitors and have been providing this specialized service since 2004.
Several of CCI’s field personnel are Qualified Aquatic Environmental Specialists (QAES). Over the years, CCI has implemented water quality monitoring regimes for hundreds of watercourse crossings, from unnamed creeks to large rivers.
We know that the social license to complete water quality monitoring projects is linked to the protection of rivers, water and habitat. CCI’s state of the art monitoring equipment and planning process ensures when a project goes to construction, the team can measure and electronically record any variation in water quality that arises and could possibly have an adverse effect. CCI’s system, working with the environmental specialist on site, can clearly define any events if they were to occur, and determine the potential impact. CCI can then provide solutions to mitigate the problem and provide solutions to move forward with the project.
