  • Groundwater Monitoring for Water Management

    Fresh water is one of the planets most critical resources essential to all land based life It is also one of the planets most rapidly diminishing resources. Conservation and protection of existing supplies and the rehabilitation of degraded sources are one of the most urgent problems facing humanity today.

  • Wood waste processing

    Between land clearing, construction, and tree care, tons of wood waste is produced around the world. Managing this wood waste is one thing – turning it into a useful by-product requires innovative solutions, like the ones you get from Vermeer.

  • Groundwater Monitoring for Construction Sites

    All construction affects groundwater and a water management plan will be required. From deforestation to urbanisation, from holes to heaps and dams to drains, they all have an affect on the groundwater. Deforestation causes an increase in the rate of run off of rainwater resulting in lower percolation of precipitation into the soil and a consequent increase in soil erosion leading to slope instability, hence land and mud slides. The increased rate of run off can cause small streams and large rivers to rise and flood in a shorter time, but also to dry up sooner. These conditions cause great difficulties for subsistence farmers in developing countries. Urbanisation also causes faster run off because of the non permeable surfaces such as roads, roofs and car parks. This also creates drainage problems that can lead to contamination and erosion of natural water courses.
