Find Partners

Characterization and management of water storage infrastructure (dikes, recharge basins, MAR techniques, etc.)
We are available to participate as Partners in a project related to Water Management. We offer long time expertise on surface water, groundwater and sediment characterization and management including analytical and data interpretation skills. Thanks to analytical results and environmental data, we are able to assess the conditions of the water resource and identify the geological background, anthropic contributions or the pollution (organic and inorganic) of a site, thus bringing valid managing proposals.
