Soils and Hydrology
Hydrology and hydrogeology refers to the study of how water flows under and through the landscape. EMPower has commissioned the independent environmental and engineering consultancy Fehily Timoney to carry out a complete Hydrology and Hydrogeological study. A desktop survey to establish the baseline conditions within and adjacent to the site will be undertaken.
Following this desktop survey, field visits will confirm a number of these findings and inform any required actions or mitigation strategies for the various stages of the project development, most notably construction.
The final site design will minimise the risk of construction materials disturbing local water courses, streams and rivers close to the site.
